Executive Insider (ExecuNet.com e-newsletter): ""A gripping, exciting and alarming business thriller where the reader knows or at least suspects the ending, but nevertheless finds the journey fascinating.While the book has the energy and drive of a good summer beach read, it delivers a compelling argument that an executive who reinvents himself after he reaches the top rung may have just manufactured a fool.""
George Anderson, Moderator, RetailWire.com: ""Celebration of Fools tells a story about the power of committing to a vision that all in retail or any other business should aspire."""
