This is a racy read and rightly challenges the stuffy, often unreadable prose found in academic outlets.
Concise, exciting, critical and overall excellent.
Indispensable and subversive.
One of the most valuable and interesting books we have read during our MBA at Cardiff University...an inspiration to us.
Very much enjoying reading "A Very Short...About Studying Organizations" - the chapter on Fast Capitalism and the End of Management seems particularly apposite at the moment. Very reflective of some of the themes I am teaching at the moment (and getting into arguments about!)
I wanted to write to you to tell you how much I appreciate your book - as evidenced by the coffee stains and frayed edges, it is a book I cannot live without and I will use it as I continue my education and into my career.
Grey’s book serves to transcend fragmented management theory and advance a tenable and valuable reorientation of the field.
This is a book I keep coming back to - and remembering...it is superbly written - and thought-provoking. What more can you ask?
A highly entertaining polemic.... This slim volume more than lives up to its title.
Chris Grey has produced a book many of us have wanted to write for a long time, but have not had the guts to do.
This book blew my little mind. In the way that going to grad school for education caused me to see the deep and complex inadequacies of the public school system, this book has caused me to question much of my received knowledge and beliefs about organizations and, more to the point, corporations. Chris Grey’s insightful analysis has unmoored me a bit and made me deeply worried about things that previously “seemed to me to be true".
Grey...has important things to say and he says them with rigour, warmth and a great deal of intelligence...He informs the analysis with humour and humility. It is the most valuable management book I have ever read.
It helped open my eyes to the organizational world around me.
Great overview of the subject - and a thought provoking critique.
Every page has something interesting to say, a great example, a sharp polemic, a superlative popularization, a thought-provoking eccentricity or a new take on something banal and tired.
I would like to thank you for such an interesting book that I couldn't put down.
Everything is in the title! It explains quickly and simply all the main points for management studies.
A highly readable, insightful and enjoyable up-to-the-minute text.
Loved the book. I read it quickly. I will re-read it with a pencil in hand this time.
This book has carved itself a permanent spot on my bookshelf as I ordered a fresh copy off Amazon after the library finally took their copy back.
