It is perhaps a novel, or Henry's autobiography, or a management handbook; or nothing more than the artistic figment of a schizophrenic mind. You'll decide. Anyway, it's great fun; sometimes even hilarious. Henry shares in this book his corporate life story; from kindergarten to the boardroom. He has been successfully climbing the corporate ladder and has -just like you, seen it all. Virtual teams, six sigma, the paradigm shift, the RACI model, etc. Henry has seen great leaders, interesting characters, dodgy consultants, violent union leaders, fraudulent managers; you’ll meet them all in this novel. He’s also happy to share with you his awkward business travel stories. Including imprisonment in Athens, hookers in Kiev and delayed BA flights. OK, that’s nothing special. Later in his career -here it gets a bit thought provoking, Henry starts reflecting. Just like you do; isn’t it?

Jul 3, 2014Left this book more than a year on the desk. Now, I finished it in 2 days. What a great read that prompted many laughs. Unfortunately there is a bit of Henry in me and certainly take some lessons out of this story. Also loved the relaxing writing style; it reads like a cheap novel; only this story has lots of content. Serious and reflective content -for those who want.
Apr 14, 2013This novel describes very well what happens in business when vagabond leaders and rogue consultants meet. JD-Detroit
Jan 10, 2013A brilliant, insightful and priceless memoir on career progression. I’d like to have Henry in our board. A must read for all career chasers in the corporate world. Peter.
Jan 9, 2013I bought it for my boss for the holidays. He came to tell me he loves it; especially the chapter on 'travels to Kiev'. But also tells me he'll be 'racing' a bit less. I really really really hope he does :) although he wants that sales report finished today before I go home :(
Nov 29, 2012This is so true on Brits in Business. Hilarious!
Nov 28, 2012Great leadership lessons and reflections on corporate life in the format of an absolutely great read.
Nov 18, 2012A refreshing book. The corporate rat-race of Henry is full of surprises, great fun and thought-provoking comments. A good challenge for today’s business leaders captured in a fast reading novel. I massively enjoyed the chapter on buzzwords; the research on the ageing workforce should be read by all politicians.
Oct 28, 2012I was attracted by the novel style of this management book and the author manages very well to combine fiction and non-fiction. While he goes at full speed, I did indeed find it relaxing and reflective reading. It features great quotes and refreshing views on today’s corporate life. If all senior leaders of the FTSE, CAC, DAX, NASDAQ, …-and investors- were to read this during their X-mas holidays, 2013 may give birth to a slightly different world.
Oct 28, 2012As the author suggested on his website, I planned to read it on the beach (in Abu Dhabi) next week. But I was too curious and started reading yesterday and now it’s finished. It’s one of those books you just can’t put aside. Hilarious it is his career track and his views on some current leadership practices. But most of all, it is very reflective. This should be a mandatory read for all students in business schools before they get into the rat-race of corporate life.
Oct 7, 2012Not suprised by Henry's humouristic approach on current leadership trends. But very positively impressed by his creativity. This is really great reading.
