With this evocation of former Avis car-rental chief Robert Townsend's two-decades-old iconoclastic management best-seller Up the Organization (1970), Sutton apparently hopes to take advantage of the current public appetite for plain-spoken, obvious "truths." Sutton is described as a "highly successful turnaround manager," though none of his successes are identified. The 51 examples he uses do come from real life, and each provides an opportunity to offer several pithy, down-to-earth observations on how companies should be run, including "cut your personnel department in half," "raise pay, cut benefits," and "make sure every manager does some dirty field work." Sutton claims that his 153 propositions, when implemented, will lead to an improved work force, increased productivity, slashed legal expenses, decreased union influence, and, of course, greater profits. For management collections that include popular works. David Rouse
