In a serendipitous twist of events, I discovered and read The Responsible Business last year. To say that it rocked my world is an understatement. Who else these days treats organizations and their stakeholders with such deep caring, wholesome sophistication and such brilliant elegance?? I read a lot of business & organization development books, and I went through the Pepperdine MSOD program, yet I’m convinced that “The Responsible Business” is by far the most important book written on the subject in decades. (I recently posted my review on Amazon.) I’m glad that now when someone asks me to recommend a few management/OD books, I can wholeheartedly say — just read The Responsible Business. – Max Shkud, 10XShift
