Length : 140 pages
Gary Sutton has been the CEO of several failing companies. How does this qualify him to right a book on management principles? After he became the CEO, the companies usually marched on to huge successes.
Using illustrations based on the stories about coal mining that he had heard from his grandfather years before, Sutton lays out five key principles that hold true no matter what type of business you are in. He believes so strongly that these principles will help you in your business, that he opens the book with a personal guarantee that he will refund your money plus a dollar if, after reading this book, you can't identify a major problem in your own company or that of a competitor. That's some guarantee. I have a stack of “helpful” books that I sure would have taken the author up on that offer if it would have been available.
Whether you are a business owner, manager, or just a member of the cubicle farm, this book is for you. Not only are business killers identified, but escape plans are illustrated. If you follow the ideas here, you can see how to come out of a bad business situation if not on top, at least on your feet and able to discern the lesson that you just watched unfold.
