Handy draws on the lessons of his own experience to help readers move beyond the facts they learned in business school and reflect on their own individual management style. With the "philosophical elegance and eloquence" Warren Bennis has described as his trademark, Handy discusses how one should develop one’s career goals in line with personal values and sense of ethics. Handy entertainingly recounts what he’s discovered along his own international journey: from lessons his father taught him growing up in Ireland…to what he learned in Borneo in his days working for Royal Dutch Shell… to Italy, where he bought and fixed up an old house in Tuscany…all the way to America, where recent corporate scandals have shaken our understanding of what is ethical and acceptable.
Throughout the book, Handy asks us to look at the role of work in our life, and what we truly find fulfilling. It is hard to imagine a better or wiser guide to work -- and life’s -- big questions.
