Reader Review(s)

"A useful idot's guide, and one for the bookshelf."   The Times

"Through the use of a pithy question-and-answer style format, it cleverly packages a snapshot of the current thought-leadership scene.  With the authors having sorted the wheat from the chaff of management gurus, the value of Business Minds lies in its succinct presentation of useful thinking frameworks and tools from old and new thought-leaders, including Peter Drucker, Tom Peters, Jonas Ridderstrale and Don Tapscott.  Well worth reading."     Professional Manager

"A good book - sound ideas.  A nice overview to give to some one who wants to gain new insights."

John Spence, Flycaster & Company
