"A business book with a bite! The Wall Street Diet provides the ingredients for making business changes in your enterprise while offering a coherent message about business impact and bottom line results. I recommend this book for senior executives and managers who want sustained improvement, not the fad of the month."
— Ken C. Bohlen, Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer, Textron, Inc.

Providing management checklists along the way is the masterstroke that will guarantee flawless execution of the concepts and significant business benefit."
— Larry Lapide, PhD, MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics
"These authors know what business is all about and how to improve one. Their diet is right on the mark for pinpointing where a business is working or not, and how to get started on making the necessary changes. The Wall Street Diet is all about making more money and keeping customers happy."
—Mike Wells, President, King Machine
