Occasionally a book will shake people's ideas and Ken Phillips shakes them often by exposing concepts you may not even realize you hold. Every day, when you 'go to work', you are involved in legal and human relationships that have a vast impact on who you are or, more significantly, who you are allowed to be. It is these ideas that Ken Phillips rattles.
What is your career? Who defines your work life? What does it mean to manage or be managed? What is the firm? How do organizations achieve their objectives and make profit? How are these things---and you---controlled and regulated? These are just some of the questions which flow from this book. Professional managers, national and international policy makers, economists, labour lawyers and entrepreneurs will find much in here of deep interest.
More importantly, it's the individual that will resonate most closely with the ideas that Ken presents.
