Author Bio

CHARLES HANDY was born in Kildare, Ireland, in 1932, and was for many years a professor at the London Business School. From 1977 to 1981, Handy served as warden of St. George's House in Windsor Castle, a private conference and study center concerned with ethics and values in society. He is now an independent writer and broadcaster who describes himself, these days, as a social philosopher. Other books by Handy include Waiting for the Mountain to Move, Beyond Certainty, and The Hungry Spirit.

Editorial Reviews

"Handy's jargon-free observations pack more power because of their clarity and prescriptive nature ... his writings don't just affect companies; they often hit individuals in a powerful way, like the advice of a trusted friAnd or relative." (Fortune)

"Handy excels at stirring controversy?and thought." (Business Week)

"Anyone exposed to long-term, pick-of-the-month guru ramblings or mind-boggling business babble will think they have wandered into a clear spot in the forest when they encounter Handy for the first time.... His writing is crisp and lucid, and his grasp on the human dilemma is remarkably encompassing." (Chicago Tribune)

"He has a gift for presenting old problems in new ways that is at the heart of all good teaching." (Times Editorial Supplement)

"Charles Handy is arguably Britain's most respected management writer." (Financial Times)
