There is no better person than Ram Charan to provide advice on managing in a downturn.
Larry Bossidy, former Chairman & CEO Honeywell International Inc.

This is all classic guru writing, stressing the extremity of the situation. But from Charan - who has already brought us bestsellers such as Execution and What the CEO Wants You to Know - it seems plausible. His forte is bold advice, delivered with convincing rhetoric. And he has completed his new text just at the right time.
