Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is good in every way. It addresses its subject fairly and squarely in a literary style that neither overwhelms nor patronises. It offers a balance of pragmatic application and robust theory. It is well 'signposted' for easy access." Julie Hyde, Professional Manager, November 2001.
