The ABC of Business book

The ABC’s of Business

Never Hire a Person Who Walks Slowly

By: Tony Falkenstein

The rules of business success don’t need to be complicated…just straightforward and easy to follow. This truism is lifted directly from the insights Tony Falkenstein gained over a long, textured and stimulating career in business – a career founded in common sense, tenacity and quick thinking.

A deceptively simple handbook for entrepreneurs, The ABC’s of Business is a highly readable collection of lessons from the mind of a reputable entrepreneur and leader. Styled as a pep talk, Falkenstein’s book is littered with indispensable wisdom gathered from a series of Falkenstein’s highs and lows. It is recommended you reread a section every 21 days (See “H is for Habit”). The wisdom espoused is invaluable, widely applicable and timeless. ―Dr. Graeme Camp, University of Auckland Business School
