Editorial Reviews

I. Gregory
"This book says in a few words, what others never say from cover to cover. Solutions to major business problems are simplified with the step-by-step approach presented.The simple, concisely stated management solutions apply whether one's view is up or down the corporate ladder. The messages in Breakthrough are so simple they seem obvious. But don't be fooled; that's obviously Kennedy's genius, not yours. YOU discover the solutions to the greatest management problems today. Her methods suddenly become yours as you read on through the book. Breakthrough will not only change your approach to management problems, it will change your entire mentality on the subject. As I read the book, I had a problem concentrating on the written text. My mind kept leaving to apply Kennedy's solutions to my everyday corporate life. Suddenly the problems were defined, and better yet, the solutions in sight. " -- I. Gregory, Ph.D., CSO, Bioponic International
Management General
Nomination for Top 10 Books in 1998 ---"In what may very easily be the future format of many business books, Kennedy focuses on the workplace syndrome of talking about problems without ever developing concrete actions to address them. Her technique, however, is special. She provides a hefty book to guide the reader toward a "Solution Revolution," then also includes a universally-accessible CD-ROM that mates with the book, making the reader's search for new ideas to intractable problems simple yet thorough. Simple in format yet wide in scope, Kennedy's book is a thinking experience excellently done. Don't just read it; drive it! --- MANAGEMENT GENERAL
Nicholas Imparato
"Kennedy's Breakthrough! is simultaneously a compendium of timeless, recognized wisdom and a great toolkit for getting something done on Monday morning. Few management packages-book, CD-ROM-pack the punch of this effort." --- Nicholas Imparato, Co-Author, Jumping the Curve and Professor of Marketing and Management, University of San Francisco Research Fellow, Hoover Institute, Stanford University (Letter to Publisher).
Public News Service
"Problem-solving for an upcoming business era of accelerating change is the goal of the boxed leadership tool set produced by Debbe Kennedy. Forget consultants, individual brainstorming, and reading another business book. It's time to get practical." ---Lex Ticonderoga, Editor Today's Books/Public News Service
