    A must for all the managers

    If you liked one minute manager, gung ho, who moved the cheese?, and carrot management books then you will like this one, too!! It tells a fictional story about a manager who fails. He picks up wrong consultants and ends up humiliating himself in front of the press... however, afterwards, the book discusses of the consequences of the manager's actions and what next step he had to take and what issues to consider after a major failure. It is not just him that he has to consider but also his personal life, his coworkers, the stakeholders, etc....
