Filled with anecdotes and thought-provoking facts, Louis Patler’s charming new compendium, is at once sophisticated and direct. While some of his admonitions to "break the old rules" and "think differently" fail to rise above the level of cliché, the book offers a unique and interesting perspective on such well-worn topics as leadership, luck, attitude, innovation and globalization. Don’t look to this book for groundbreaking business strategy, but getAbstract.com does recommend Patler’s latest as an engaging and energizing read.
