About the book:

Gerry Robinson is one of the UKs most powerful businessmen and presenter of the TV series Ill Show Them Whos Boss. His tie-in book draws on case studies from the two TV series which highlight six key management issues: leadership, formulating a strategy for the future, relations with your staff, implementing redundancies, focusing on the important issues, and communication. For those interested in the techniques and skills required to run a successful business, Robinson is the man to read. Why this book rather than others? What can Robinson provide that other management books or business gurus cannot? Perhaps the answer is suggested by the fact that his book is extremely interesting even to those who have no real interest in business and no ambition to begin their own. Robinson has hated every book on business and management he has ever read and is convinced that the practical skills required to run a business are relatively simple. But this does not mean that everyone can run a successful business. Robinsons gift is not that he understands and clearly relates what the requisite skills are, but that he is a subtle psychologist who only cares about whats necessary to make the business work. Much of the interest in the book and the TV shows is generated by the fact that the focus is upon family-run firms. Petty jealousies, rivalries and pecking-orders all add interest for the reader and provide a foil for Robinsons sharp eye for the necessities of successful business building. Finding out who has and who has not got the requisite qualities of leadership in this contextwhere peoples pride, ambitions, and ultimately, livelihoods are on the linemakes for fascinating reading and for wonderful instruction on the dos and donts. Robinsons prose style is simple and to the point and one cannot help thinking that the man is every bit as good as he thinks he is. --Larry Brown
