Product description


"The bracing manifesto of a forward-looking radical ... The Second Curve successfully channels the energy and enthusiasm of the younger generation, in whom Handy places great hope ... Handy's prescience over the decades has earned him the right to dabble and, given his record, you would not want to bet against some of his radical ideas coming true." -- Andrew Hill Financial Times "Gentle but incisive ... [Handy's] voice is a reassuring, challenging presence. We should continue to listen to it." Management Today "This book will get you thinking." Daily Telegraph "Strong and original... It is impossible not to be impressed and a little daunted by so much energy and wisdom." Irish Independent "Wise words, succinctly put - the work of a master." -- Peter Cook HR Zone
