Review quote

'We really liked this book. If accountants had a reading list for success then this book would be on it.' PQ Careers 'Business Gurus is a remarkable and interesting collection of ideas from the thought leaders of the 20th and the first decade of the 21st century. They represent the best mix of classic business thinking and the new wave of digital visionaries... A crisp introduction to thought-leaders who play a significant part in the leadership and management styles of today. Business Executive First and foremost I really liked this book...Throughout the chapters it demonstrates a deep and well-explained understanding of business thinking and business thinking and business practice...The mix of academic weight and real business experience gives the book and accessible and well grounded feel...The book is clearly and succinctly written by a team of authors who really know their subject.Paul Rapley, Assistant Headteacher at Taverham High School, Norwich Teaching Business & Economics
