From the Publisher

"Anyone who is interested in management theories will be compelled to read this book. It is a glorious miscellaneous mix of ideologies."  —Management Week

"Are you confused by management jargon and nonplussed about why the likes of Charles Handy and Gary Hamel are held in such great awe? Then Carol Kennedy's book could be just the thing for you."  —The Independent

"Kennedy . . . provides a welcome guide to today's ever-growing flood of books by management 'gurus.'"   —Publishers Weekly
