Thin on Top by Bob Garratt
Book DescriptionTaking readers behind the boardroom door, Thin on Top issues a wake-up call to directors and executives, government regulators and lobbyists, owners and investors, about what it will take to break the cycle of corporate misdeeds, professionalise directing, reduce corruption and ensure a civil society. Garratt advocates a back-to-basics approach based on the centuries-old value of good governance - accountability, honesty and transparency to owners, whether public or private, as he demystifies the role of the CEO, debunks the three most widely-held organizational myths about the limits of openness and personal power and details a system of metrics to measure and manage a new set of competencies for the board, its directors, and the company as a whole. Rigorous application of these alone will prevent most of the directoral disasters we read about in our daily newspapers.

Author Biography - Bob Garratt
Bob Garratt is the ideal person to write about corporate governance, boards and directors and this is the right time for this book. That he has warned us of most of the problems that now appear everywhere daily is part of the appeal; the rest is that he has a gift for words and, frankly, fears no man in his insistence on honest analysis. We are all fortunate in the timing of this book's publication.--Robert A G Monks, author of Power and Responsbility
