AuthorAndrew Simms
Publication Date1/1/2011
Editorial ReviewI wish this book had been available when we made the very bad mistake of becoming a public company, it is the antithesis of becoming a human company. It confirms my belief that closing down The Harvard Business School would be doing a service to mankind... -- Gordon Roddick, Head of Body Shop and winner of the Observer Ethical Awards Lifetime Achievement Award If you want to understand why we're paying the price for decades of economic folly, read this book. The chapter on BP alone is worth it. If you want to ensure that we don't repeat the mistakes of the past, read this book. In these extraordinary tales, Andrew Simms and David Boyle point the way forward, revealing how enterprise can become more socially and environmentally useful. -- Caroline Lucas MP, leader of the Green Party This book is the essential guide to what went wrong with British business. From BP to Cadbury and Virgin - oil and chocolate to almost anything - these tragi-comic tales reveal how our own fates have become linked to the rise and fall of massive corporations. -- Larry Elliott, Economics Editor, The Guardian Eminent Corporations is a coruscating but amusing account of what goes wrong when corporations grow too large. This book is the last word in why companies should never be allowed to become 'too big to fail'. -- George McRobie, author of 'Small is Possible,' and former chairman of the Intermediate Technology Development Group
