The Boardroom Secrets addresses the behavioral aspects of good governance. Roger Barker of the Institute of Directors (London) claims that “This wise and practical book that argues that trust lies at the heart of coprorate governance will be of significant use in guiding the thinking of board members and company stakeholders alike”. The Founder of the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance, David Beatty who reviewed the book said “Shareholders, directors and top managers will welcome this wise, insightful, and practical book. I know of no better single source for getting it right in the boardroom. Read these secrets, apply them diligently, and improve your board’s performance.”
