Memos from the Chairman

By Alan C Greenberg
Ace Greenberg did almost everything better than I do bridge, magic tricks, dog training, and arbitrage all the important things in life. WARREN BUFFETT Alan C. Greenberg, the former chairman of Bear, Stearns, and a celebrated philanthropist, was known throughout the financial world for his biting, quirky but invaluable and wise memos. Read by everyone from Warren Buffett to Jeff Bezos to Tom Peters ( I love this book, the coauthor of "In Search of Excellence" said), Greenberg s MEMOS FROM THE CHAIRMAN comprise a unique and uniquely simple management philosophy. Make decisions based on common sense. Avoid the herd mentality. Control expenses with unrelenting vigil. Run your business at the highest level of morality. Free your motivated, intelligent people from the chain of command. Always return phone calls promptly and courteously. Never believe your own body odor is perfume. And stay humble, humble, humble."

"Oh, Haimchinkel Malintz Anaynikal, where were you when I needed your wise counsel? I love this book. If I didn't have a dreaded MBA I might even, at age 53, apply for a job at Bear Stearns."--Tom Peters, co-author of "In Search of Excellence"
