'This book provides a good overview of most aspects of development from cradle to grave: covering stages from recruitment, through training and appraisal systems. It is well written, easy to read and thought provoking in the use of a series of prompt questions to challenge assumptions. I found it both enjoyable and invaluable in thinking through larger strategic issues behind the "day job".'
