"Business Decisions! is extremely well motivated, very provocative, and filled with practical insight into making better decisions for your business. It should be essential reading for all managers."

—Professor Stephen P. Bradley, William Ziegler Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

"Business decisions come in all shapes and sizes, and the most common mistake leaders make is to misunderstand the type of decision they are making, and therefore the kind of thinking and preparation they need to bring to it. Michael's book sets out the lay of the land in a series of no-nonsense frameworks that tee up the right issues in the right contexts. Read it once to get the overall feel of the domain, and then keep it handy for when you are making decisions outside your comfort zone."

—Geoffrey Moore, author, Crossing the Chasm and Dealing with Darwin: How Great Companies Innovate at Every Phase of Their Evolution
