Product description


"This is a gem of a publication." Geoffrey Green formerly Senior Partner, Ashurst LLP, UK "This is one of the best business books I have read! The way you have structured the book really resonates with me. It was a joy to read, and offers some great insights." Satu Aavikko Team Leader, Accenture Ltd, Sydney, Australia "What a triumph! It's informal, racy, brief. I loved the many quotes, but most importantly it is WISE!!! Sir Gus Nossal FRS formerly Director, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne, Australia "Herding Professional Cats is a 'must read' book. I will describe my impression in one word. Brilliant!" Dr Ramesh Mashelkar FRS President, Global Research Alliance; formerly Director General, CSIR National Laboratories, India "HPC is even more inspiring and instructive than its inspiring predecessor." Prof Bai Chunli President, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China "What a delightful day I've had, reading the manuscript of your new book - a fine text, and a wonderful extension of what was already a fine project." Dr Ian Steadman Director of Development, Oxford Brookes University, UK 'HPC is a lovely book ... many pearls of wisdom. I found myself constantly thinking 'That is so true' ." Sheridan Ash Director, PwC, UK
