Title: Testosterone Inc: Tales of CEOs Gone Wild

ISBN : 0471420050
Author : Christopher M. Byron
Publisher : John Wiley & Sons Inc
Media : Hardcover
SKU MIX31-U31-A4-ORY2-46445


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;A smarmy wallow in the sleaziest escapades of four powerful and highly visible CEOs, Byron's latest serves up a titillating mix of snark, sanctimony and pop psychology. In his last book, the bestselling Martha, Inc., the veteran business journalist asserted that Stewart was driven by resentment toward her brutish father and her humble roots. In this new book, Byron's analysis leads him to the loopy conclusion that his four subjects-Jack Welch, Dennis Kozlowski, Ronald Perelman and Al Dunlap-are all victims of excessive testosterone. What, Byron asks, could motivate such accomplished businessmen to jeopardize their legacies by divorcing devoted wives, siphoning corporate funds or engaging in tawdry affairs? &doublequote;The answer,&doublequote; he eagerly insists, &doublequote;lies not in their stars but in their skivvies.&doublequote; Though Byron examined some 15,000 documents and interviewed 90 people for this book, none of his four subjects would agree to an interview for this project, so there are no first-hand accounts to corroborate (or refute) his diagnosis. But tracing the fine points of psychology, or delivering a measured analysis of business strategy, isn't really the point of this book, which aims to entertain with juicy accounts of embarrassing peccadilloes. Readers who get a chuckle out of watching rich and powerful men make fools of themselves will find plenty to like here. As for all that research: this book contains little that is especially new or valuable, unless you really care to know such details as exactly which of Welch's uncles was a drunk.&newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.&newline;&newline;&newline;From AudioFile&newline;&newline;Looking for things to criticize in today's corporate leadership? This audio, much like the movie JACKASS, portrays men doing goofy things, except on a massive financial scale, and with enough immorality not to be funny. The title contains compelling reporting about the excesses of Al Dunlap of Sunbeam, Jack Welch of GE, Dennis Kozlowski of Tyco, and others, all business titans who couldn't limit their appetites for fame, sex, power, and privilege. NEW YORK POSTcolumnist Byron, also author of a Martha Stewart biography, has a gift for narrative flow. His speaking personality enjoys his own material, but not too much. The presentation is so entertaining that one forgets it's a cautionary tale with a trail of financial damage and tainted lives. T.W. AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine&newline;--This text refers to the &newline;&newline;Audio CD&newline;edition.
