Praise & Reviews

Praise for Inside Drucker’s Brain:

“This book conveys the greatness and humanity of Peter Drucker.  Managers couldn’t find a better refresher course to read than this book on first principles of management.”

—Philip Kotler, Marketing Pioneer, and author of the breakthrough book Marketing Management

“Jeffrey Krames’ meeting with Drucker was the opportunity of a lifetime, and his giving us this insightful glimpse of the humble man behind the most influential management ideas of the last several centuries is a priceless gift for all us!”

—Margret McBride, co-author The 4th Secret of The One Minute Manager

“Inside Drucker’s Brain is the best Drucker book not written by the man himself. If you thought you knew Drucker and his best management ideas I challenge you to read this book and come away unchanged.”

—Bill McDermott, President & CEO, SAP Americas & Asia Pacific Japan

“Fabulous! The best comprehensive survey of Drucker’s ideas available anywhere. Reading this very engaging book is like getting a personal tutorial by the creator of modern management.”

—Robert J. Herbold, Former COO, Microsoft Corporation

“The best introduction and distillation of Drucker’s genius in existence.”

—Warren G. Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business at the University of Southern California, co-author of Judgment: How Winning Leaders Make Great Calls and On Becoming a Leader

“Inside Drucker’s Brain gives readers access to the treasure chest of Drucker’s best ideas—and provides specific suggestions for ways that managers can put Drucker’s wisdom to work in their own organizations.”

—Barbara E. Bund, author of The Outside-in Corporation and former professor at MIT Sloan School of Management and at Harvard Business School

“What an unexpectedly engaging and informative book!  Instead of serving up a predictable repetition and review of Peter Drucker’s many contributions, Jeffrey Krames has created a fascinating book that is part biography of the great man’s life, part critical synthesis of his many contributions, and part history of the evolving practice of management — all interspersed with Krames’s own insightful analysis, illustration, and key lessons learned. As a result, this is a book that can be enjoyed as much by a new generation of managers as by those who have followed Drucker’s work for decades. It’s the book Peter would have wished for — beyond a celebration of his life and a retrospective of his work, it applies his timeless ideas to today’s business challenges in an informative way that is bound to have a positive effect on current management practice.”

—Christopher A. Bartlett, Thomas D. Casserly Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, Harvard Business School.

“Finally a book on Drucker that combines the best of two worlds.  Drucker’s profound insights are expressed by Krames, who writes in an interesting and engaging manner.  Then there’s the added bonus of having many of his ideas adapted to today’s issues.  Capping it off is the personal glimpse into the man and how he thought.”

–Jack Zenger, CEO of Zenger | Folkman and co-author of the best-selling The Extraordinary Leader.

Praise for Jack Welch and the 4E’s of Leadership:

Jeffrey Krames latest book, Jack Welch and the 4Es of Leadership, has won awards around the globe and has been translated into a dozen languages. Kirkus, the powerful publishing magazine, proclaimed the book to be “DESTINED TO BECOME A LEADERSHIP CLASSIC.”

Praise for What the Best CEOs Know:

“For those without the time to keep up with the flood of CEO biographies, this is the thinking man’s encapsulated summary.  Krames distills the core insights from the elite of business leadership in our time.  He captures the powerful insights rather than the conventional wisdom, and he simplifies without dumbing down. But most of all, he presents a provocative, engaging read that will stretch the thinking of any practicing manager.”

–Christopher Bartlett, Thomas D. Casserly, Jr. Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Graduate School of Business

“By capturing the unique traits and strategies of these seven leaders, Krames gives aspiring CEOs a valuable blueprint for success in an increasingly tough global market.”

–Klaus Kleinfeld, President & CEO, Siemens Corporation

Praise for The Lexicon of Leadership:

“I can’t imagine a CEO who wouldn’t benefit from reading this book which highlights the key ideas and actions of one of this century’s most remarkable business leaders, Jack Welch.”
