'Charles Handy's books have been a godsend... Britain's leading management writer is consistently provocative, highly readable and insightful. You might not always agree with him, but he is sure to get you thinking. Myself and Other More Important Matters...uses all his varied experience...to ask further searching questions about how we live and work and where society is headed.
' Daily Telegraph Perhaps best known outside the business world as the wise and warm presenter of Radio 4's 'Thought for the Day', Charles Handy has long been recognised as one of the world's leading business thinkers. In Myself and Other More Important Matters, he leaves the management territory he has so effectively and influentially mapped in the past to investigate the wider issues and dilemmas - both moral and creative - raised by the turning points of his long and successful life. Ultimately his thoughtful questioning of his experiences is designed to inspire our own - what do we really value? Is it money? Time? Family and community? What is the role of work in our lives? What do we find fulfilling? Myself and Other More Important Matters provides the opportunity to learn life-lessons from one of our wisest contemporaries - and ultimately to inform and influence our own making of life's major decisions. 'I have always found Professor Handy's writing and ideas a goldmine of new thinking and challenges.' Lord Ashdown in the Sunday Times 'Charles Handy's books, The Age of Unreason, The Empty Raincoat and Beyond Certainty have secured him uncontested guru status.' Scotland on Sunday
