Jones on Management

Author(s): Bob Jones


For three decades Bob Jones has entertained and informed with his books, both fiction and non-fiction. Given his commercial success, Bob is well-placed to write on management, but this is no dry exposition as one might anticipate with such a subject. Rather, an eclectic range of topics, individuals and propositions grace these pages. Was Haile Selassie foolish to deny Rastafarians' claim that he was God? Could there be a market for wheel-chaired strippers? The importance of drunkenness in making commercial decisions. These and many other subjects are addressed in a book that will delight readers and is vintage Jones. First published 2008.
