The right way to do business
This book is hopefully revolutionary. It is the way I want our business to operate and I believe will provide sustainability and the greatest benefits for all stakeholders. This book is very well written and I highly recommend it.
This should be required business reading
In every college business course, this book should be required. It is through people like a John Mackey and Jim Collins that we learn how businesses not only excel and create value, but should be operated. This book is excellent and should be read by all business leaders and managers and will be left on my desk to revisit yearly.
This is the first time time the fundamental issue and severe corruption pure capitalism creates is juxtaposed against the few that are the exception. The animal instincts and animal sprits that greed/fear of loss bring about are so tightly part of the “The America Dream” and base we fail to realize business has evolved but not human compassion and equanimity… We are a creating a culture of ruthlessness and a gilded age and ensuing class war, isolation and suffering to those with less. And we are sliding fast in terms of education, health care and job satisfaction in a trade off for money and quick gains
