From the Publisher"In this book, the authors have used an interesting approach in teaching some of the lessons learned in the technology downturn of the early twenty-first century. Beware the Winner's Curse gives us alternative ways of thinking of asset values before we overpay for these assets." -Joseph J. Bonocore, President & CEO, Impresa Technologies, Inc.
"Beware the Winner's Curse is a brutally honest review of how often investors lose money when management pursues winning at almost any cost. The authors present abundant examples of corporate hubris that should send shivers down the spine of any director serious about protecting shareowner interests." -Harvey Seegers, former CEO, Global Exchange Services
"Beware the Winner's Curse is an excellent guide for executives who frequently bid on commercial projects. More than a caution against a reckless pursuit of every opportunity, this book provides a model and a framework to systematically evaluate each situation on its own merit. Every executive who wants to deploy his resources effectively should read this book." -William E. Steele, Chairman and CEO, Kencast
"Anandalingam and Lucas provide an excellent analysis and a critical redefinition of the concept of winning. They seriously question conventional thinking, and provide important ideas for all persons involved in both operational and strategic aspects of a business." —Joseph Vithayathil, CEO, Big Sur Communications
