“[A] constantly stimulating book… It should be required reading for anyone who has the qualification, wants one, or just wonders what all the fuss is about.”
The Economist

“…an inspiring and insightful book.”

"… a powerful statement and a terrific read…. What gives the book its resonance is that it is 'a book about management education that is about management.'"
The Observer

"…a rousing manifesto for the thoroughgoing reform of management education and how we think about it.”
