Harvard Business Review Press and the consultants from Bain & Company have come up with an excellent book.... that rises far above the others." -- Borsen

Mankins and Garton [point out] that time is just one component of human capital.

Quite simply, companies with inspired employees perform better than the rest." -- Forbes.com
