I strongly recommend it to any manager who wishes to improve. --Goh Aik Meng, Country Managing Partner, Malaysia, Resources ASEAN CSG Director, Accenture
Smart Moves depicts management as it really is. It provides a clear and concise view of major issues for the novice manager while also offering realistic advice on daily management challenges to those already in senior positions. I also strongly recommend this book to students of management courses in universities and business schools who aspire to a career in business management and who will appreciate this as a robust and entertaining foundation. --Anders Lundquist, President, Pacific 2000 International Recruitments
