Long before the Harvard Business School, there was William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare's vast and important contributions to literature have long been acknowledged, but his shrewd insights into business and management have been all but ignored--until now. A pithy book of wise business musings from the bard, Shakespeare On Management captures entertaining and uncannily accurate reflections on fifty-six of the most popular topics in business today, from mergers and acquisitions to office politics, power lunches to public relations.
Think of Hamlet, the poignant case of too-sensitive young executive who fails to move up the corporate ladder because of his inability to make decisions. Or Julius Caesar, which at its heart is nothing of not an attempt at a hostile takeover by disgruntled stockholders. Or consider King Lear, a warning to all executives of family businesses the perils of divestiture and early retirement.
Smart, thought-provoking, and astonishingly contemporary, Shakespeare On Management is truly a time-tested classic that belongs on every well-read executive's bookshelf.
