Description:

"Effectively peels back the surface of family businesses to explore the impact of individual personality and interpersonal relationships - powerful but easily ignored factors in the world of private enterprise." -Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chief Executive Officer, BW Shipping "Groundbreaking and holistic view that gives a family business soul while explaining irrationalities in a rational way." -Mr Chavalit Tsao, Chairman IMC Group, Singapore "Family business is a topic of considerable importance to my firm because we are a family business as are many of our most important clients. The book's focus on both individual and family psychology offers new insights into the positive and negative influences that family relationships bring to the supposedly rational business world." -Raymond J. Baer, Chairman of the Board, Julius Baer Holding Ltd "Fascinating read. I believe very strongly in the statement that 'too many people take a rational actor approach' when it comes to family controlled businesses (FCB). There are limits to logical decision making and we need to explore those. FCB are therefore essentially more human than publicly owned companies and it is only appropriate that we should apply psychological theories of human mental phenomena and behaviour, to understand them better." -Andr Hoffmann, Non Executive Vice Chairman - Board of Directors, Roche Group Ltd ---------------------------------
