Anyone who depends upon or shapes a company's reputation—customers, employees, news media, NGOs, and bloggers—will benefit from reading Dr. Gaines-Ross's book and will learn more about the influence they wield over corporate reputations."
—Dr. Robert G. Eccles, Senior Lecturer, Harvard Business School

"At a time when companies are facing unprecedented reputation crises comes a timely primer from Dr. Gaines-Ross that tells us what companies need to do to bring their reputations back from the brink. The book's 12-step reputation recovery model captures what we know about effective crisis management, and brings the process to life with a host of detailed case examples. It's right on the mark!"

    What a fabulous read. Dr. Gaines-Ross¿ 12 Steps is a well-written, smartly researched and extremely reader-friendly book. I like how each chapter starts with a compelling story of lost reputation and missed opportunity. The author turns each corporate case history into a nail-biter, with each foreshadowing the steps that are needed to restore reputation. Her conclusions falling under ¿Return to Flight¿ are right on.
