In today's tumultuous business environment, managers want guidance in the form of a timely theme, a unique and memorable metaphor, and outside-the-box thinking. That's precisely what Corporate Canaries delivers. The book features five core chapters revealing five common business hazards, and each lesson is accompanied by a story based on the author's grandfather's work in the coal industry, as well as an applicable "canary warning" for each theme.

About the Author:

Gary Sutton is an author, top-rated speaker, and veteran business turnaround expert. Over his acclaimed twenty-year career, Sutton has taken over and revitalized troubled businesses, turning money-losing companies into cash generators. Sutton sits on several boards today, and has spoken at the MIT Forum for fifteen years. He has appeared on MSNBC, CNNfn, CBS News, and NPR. He's been covered by or written for the Wall Street Journal and other publications.

From Publishers Weekly:

Using his grandfather's folksy coalmining lore, business turnaround expert Sutton shows how the basics of sound business practices apply to any successful enterprise, from coalmining to aerospace to cell phone service to retail. In five short chapters, the former CEO of several companies opens with one of his grandfather's stories, then mines it for nuggets of wisdom to apply to today's business environment. Sutton builds his book on the simple premise that "ducking catastrophe is the key to success." Claiming to be "the first book showing managers how to detect potential disasters," like the canaries coalminers used to detect poisonous gases in their mines, Sutton warns against taking on too much debt, confusing sales with profits, being indecisive and neglecting to keep a close eye on your market. He offers practical steps to avoid hazards and backs them up with his or other businesses' experiences and solutions, making for a book that's both breezy and informative.
