"For his courage to speak out forthrightly, he is to be commended. Plain talk...by a fellow member of the lodge is still regarded as the act of a renegade. "--The New York Times
"...unsparingly critical of the follies that hinder business efficiency, poking fun zestfully at stuffed shirts wherever he finds them."--Christian Science Monitor
In 1959, Clarence Randall wrote a book that blew the lid off of business culture in America. Armed with nothing more than old-fashioned common sense, a mordant sense of humor, and the unflinching willingness to call a spade a spade, he, in one fell swoop, did in 16 of corporate America's most sacred of sacred cows. Now, more than four decades later, Randall's trenchant insights and keen sense of humanity remain as fresh as when he penned them. This specially reprinted edition includes a new foreword by Ken Iverson, Chairman of Nurcore Steel.
CLARENCE B. RANDALL was Chairman of Inland Steel Co. of Chicago. and held various government posts, including special consultant to President Eisenhower on foreign economic policy.
