Borenstein's book is atypical of many HR books that land on my desk - it's well-structured, researched and moves the reader through the issues at a good clip. It's also a good read as it explains why businesses that resemble a 1960's television show are outdated in the way they manage and help their employees.

"I really appreciated that Lorna's book wasn't a one-dimensional, one-note book. It guides the reader as to how to make the case for change, how to sell it, and how to create the culture you want. But maybe the best aspect of the book is that it's not just for a CEO, the lessons can be applied to any manager, director, supervisor, etc."
