This is a very down-to-earth book, one that reflects a lifetime of experience in the plastics industry.Written largely for management wannabees, there is something even for mid to upper level executives that they may have missed or forgotten on their way up.Some of the unidentified examples of how not to do something will ring a bell with those who have also been in the industry for a long time, especially on the topic of acquisitions gone bad!Jones has a writing style that is easy to read and while many of his points seem rather basic, they are clearly essential to running a successful and ethical busines.He is definitely a Peter Drucker fan, which says something good about his approach to running a technology company.
