I hope people will read this book and see it as a way of pushing for change and helping others towards simpler and better ways of working -- Julian Birkinshaw * Management Today * If you're in the know, then Richard Koch - entrepreneur, investor and author - is someone whose books you want to read -- Emma De Vita * Third Sector * Richard Koch offers tremendous insight and practical guidance to help managers focus on the vital few things in their jobs, so that they can surf their objectives and achieve more with less * Dr Peter Johnson, Fellow, Exeter College, Oxford University * The good thing about this book is that it makes you think.

Some of the ten will surprise you * Christopher Outram, Co-Founder & Chairman Emeritus, OC&C Strategy Consultants * I have long felt that laziness is a good quality in a manager without knowing either why or how to practise it as much as I would have liked.
