Praise for Charles Handy and The Hungry Spirit:
"The Hungry Spirit is particularly timely."
–Times Literary Supplement
"[Handy’s] jargon-free observations pack more power because of their clarity and prescriptive nature…his writings don’t just affect companies; they often hit individuals in a powerful way, like the advice of a trusted friend or relative."
"Handy excels at stirring controversy–and thought."
"Anyone exposed to long-term, pick-of-the-month guru rumblings or mind-boggling businessbabble will think they have wandered into a clear spot in the forest when they encounter Handy for the first time…His writing is crisp and lucid, and his grasp on the human dilemma is remarkably encompassing."
"Handy is…a stimulating thinker who offers a warm sense of hope for the future…He has the persuasiveness of a preacher and the literariness of the anecdotal Irish storyteller…The Hungry Spirit will…be an uplifting experience for anyone seeking a philosophy in a world short of well-expressed humanist creeds."
"Charles Handy [is] arguably Britain’s most respected management writer."
