Fox is the master of the counterintuitive angle. For every boss who has implied "I know what's best, that's why I'm the boss," Fox counsels, "Listen to Phonies, Fools, and Frauds" and "Don't Check Expense Accounts." His stories from bosses who have cared equally for employees' lives and the bottom line will inspire you to see that profit counts, but so do camaraderie, motivation, and a great place to work.
In a time of considerable corporate downsizing, it's more important than ever for bosses to surround themselves with motivated employees. Jeffrey Fox's newest volume will have a place on the shelves of top brass everywhere who want to remain leaders of their pack.

A Fine Piece of Work
This started out as a book with many ?common-sense? concepts, and evolved into an extremely eye-opening lecture with key set of easy-to-understand rules. I found many of the ideas to be very practical. The ideas were very succinctly communicated, and the use of anecdotes helped to further illustrate these principles. Highly recommded to anyone in a supervisory role.

What I thought about the book
I think the book is must for bosses in all companies or even bosses that have one person working for them. It gives you guidelines to follow if they work for your company. It also throws out the old adage that company change is bad. Anything that can be done to make an employee's environment better for them almost always makes the company better. Some of the ideas present will not work for every company but there is something for everyone.
