Clear and concise board advice

This is a well written and valuable book on what it means to execute an effective board. Read the book in small chunks as the amount of information can be overwhelming particularly for those new to governing.

Good for new chairs

The book is good for board members interested in improving their contribution in the board room. As a new chair I find it very useful. Use of relevant examples, cases and scenarios may have added further value.
