Wow, what common sense and wise advice without arrogance. Each chapter has a clear message & is transferable to a range of businesses. A good holiday or car journey listen though possibly better studied in print.
Procurement, especially of IT, is never easy - this book needs to be read by Civil Servants & politicians before the country makes more expensive mistakes ...BDUK?

This book is like a leadership and management course in 8 hours, as well as being extremely interesting and inspiring. Terry Leahy puts across his personal experiences of leading a large company with tips that will help anyone whose work involves leading others, in any organisation, large or small, in the private or public sector.
My one gripe about this book is the narration. Very often the narrator puts emphasis on the wrong words in a sentence, causing the meaning of the sentence to be difficult to understand. Worse, when the book includes a quote, the narrator will attempt a poor imitation of the accent of the original speaker. This happens often, from the inaccurate American twang of Henry Ford to an excruciating attempt at the Czech voice of Václav Havel. This is very distracting and makes it difficult to concentrate on the words actually being spoken.
Nevertheless, despite the narration, an excellent book and a must-listen for anyone with an interest in leadership, management, business, or modern day responsible capitalism.
