MEDIA REVIEWS

'In this groundbreaking book, David Greatbatch and Timothy Clark extend our understanding of the management guru phenomenon by focusing on the live oratory and presentations of the most accomplished speakers. Visual communication technology has enhanced rather than reduced the importance of the live presentation, and the authors demonstrate how skilled guru speakers use language to enthuse their audiences; build their personal reputations; attract and sustain a mass following; and enhance their star status.' - Andrzej Huczynski, Senior Lecturer in Organizational Behaviour, University of Glasgow

'If you ever ask yourself why management gurus have such a strong impact on managers and the public with so little content, here is a book which provides a convincing answer.' - Alfred Kieser, Professor of Organizational Behavior, Mannheim University

'This excellent book offers a fascinating analysis of 'management speak' and a deft deconstruction of the tricks of the trade. Management gurus will never be quite the same again.' - John Heritage, University of California, Los Angeles
