Age of Heretics: A History of the Radical Thinkers Who Reinvented Corporate Management

    By Art Kleiner
In this second edition of his bestselling book, author Art Kleiner explores the nature of effective leadership in times of change and defines its importance to the corporation of the future. He describes a heretic as a visionary who creates change in large-scale companies, balancing the contrary truths they can't deny against their loyalty to their organizations.
