William Shakespeare's contributions to literature have long been
acknowledged. But his contributions to business and management have
been all but ignored -- until now. Capitalizing on the recent wave
of enthusiasm for Shakespeare, this indispensable business book
provides Shakespeare's ruminations on 56 of the most popular topics

from the Bard's plays and poems, all carefully selected to provide
today's executive with the uncannily accurate insights on the
modern workplace. Shakespeare on Management is truly a time-tested
