'The sly wit of Management Mumbo-Jumbo amuses and enlightens. We start to see how shallow much of the management hype really is and begin to pick out the things that matter and bring honest results. A refreshing book.' - Business Executive
'I find this a very accessible book that contains plenty of useful material to help managers think more ambitiously, positively and effectively. Overall I found it very enjoyable.' - Michael Cullum, Leadership Matters
'Challenging the received wisdom of the corporate world, this book makes an enjoyable and stimulating read for sceptical employees, open-minded business students and managers alike.' - Mark Whitley, IET (Engineering Management)
