News & Opinion: John Byrne's Reviews

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:00 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I really enjoy the book reviews by Fast Company's John Byrne. You'll see him posting them from time to time on the FC Now blog. The first recommendation I came across was Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott. I read the book and thought it was outstanding. Last week, Byrne posted two entries (Part I and Part II) on McKinsey's Marvin Bower : Vision, Leadership and the Creation of Management Consulting by Elizabeth Haas Edersheim. As he posts others, I'll point you to them.
