Overview

"By far the best book on corporate and institutional governance." —Nicholas Katzenbach, former attorney general of the United States
In his new foreword to The Board Book, former Mellon Foundation and Princeton University president William G. Bowen brings his immense experience to bear on the most pressing questions facing boards of directors and trustees today: seeking collaborative relationships and placing a renewed emphasis on sustainable initiatives. The strategies Bowen relates throughout the book foster the collegiality and sense of purpose—more important in today’s turbulent times than ever before—that are integral to any effective board.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“He minces no words . . . a compelling and critical read for wannabe directors—and for every student of corporate affairs.”
Midwest Book Review
“Drawing on thirty years of experience with both for-profit and non-profit boards, it offers insights on ideal relationships between presidential and board members. Any business library needs this.”
Paul Volcker
“Provocative and pragmatic . . . filled with wise counsel even for those already a CEO or member of a board.”
