Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There’s lots you can do with the book, starting with just enjoying the ride. It's a series of compelling lessons, all wrapped around a towering intellectual and some wonderful anecdotes, with Mr. Cohen, himself a management educator, adding his own supplementary thoughts at points. Some of it will be familiar for those steeped in Peter Drucker, and some of it will be new. But all of it should be fascinating.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“This book, done by one of The Master’s first PhD recipients, is a warm and useful read.” Business to Business
