Synopsis

"Lynn Paine has an optimistic analysis of the need for--and the value of--bringing ethical values into business decision-making. The 'meltdown' of so many high-flyers reecntly suggests that lesson had been lost on too many companies during the boom years. The time has come to take account of what she writes."--Paul A. Volcker

"This book presents a way of broadening the role of the corporation in our society, an interesting and exciting role. It's a good read for young leaders in all walks of life."--John C. Whitehead, former Chairman, Goldman Sachs

"Value Shift provides a timely and compelling argument for why companies must incorporate values into their strategies--that no one in business can afford to ignore."--Daniel Vasella, Chairman + CEO /Novartis AG
