I highly recommend it. -- Henry Birch, Chief Executive of the Rank Group plc

I'm moderately successful but permanently playing catch-up. I'm late for everything. I struggle to prioritize, and even to catch my breath. I juggle with only mixed results. I'm glad I stepped back and created enough space to read Derek Draper's original, clever, practical book. Space to think is the most basic necessity. Draper has shown me, for the first time, where I can find it. -- Euan Rellie, Co-founder and Senior MD, BDA (Business Development Asia)
I see loads of business books and they can often be one idea stretched out to fill a book and a little bit too "ivory tower". This book's different. Each chapter takes a vital skill and digs deep to really understand it, through very life-like and funny stories. There's then a tonne of practical suggestions that will resonate with anyone who works in business. If you're serious about your career grab this now and get reading. -- Ian King, Business Editor, Sky News
This new book from Derek Draper looks fascinating - on a theme which I'm sure all of us struggle with and could use some advice on. -- James Crabtree, author * The Billionaire Raj *
