Review quote

"George Cloutier's new book is based on his experience with thousands of small businesses in hundreds of industries. It is a candid, "tell it as it really is," hard-hitting book... A must read for all small and midsized business owners." -- Tom Cochran, CEO and executive director, The United States Conference of Mayors "This slim but forceful debut by turnaround management expert Cloutier serves as a wakeup call for small business owners who have been hit hard by the recession... Cloutier's book is loaded with valuable advice on how to get back on track and stay in the black in any economic environment." -- Publishers Weekly "Packed with client examples and a no-nonsense attitude. Many of his regulations will amaze, shock, and awe small-business owners... Harsh ways to work? Yes, yet all his principles are founded on a success that's hard to argue with." -- Booklist
