Charles Handy writes well in all his books. It took me a while to read - not because he is difficult to read, rather he provoked a consistent degree of though and contemplation concerning aspects of my life. Where other gurus offer glib answers and seem overly ego-driven, Handy has always specialised in helping us question what our organizations are for; how best to structure them; how work fits into life and what our driving purpose is.
Throughout the book, Handy asks us to look at the role of work in our life, and what we truly find fulfilling. Charles Handy was born in Kildare, Ireland, in 1932, and was for many years a professor at the London Business School. It is hard to imagine a better or wiser guide to work and lifes big questions. From 1977 to 1981, Handy served as warden of the St. George's House in Windsor Castle, a private conference and study center concerned with ethics and values in society. He is now an independent writer and broadcaster who describes himself, these days, as a social philosopher. Other books by Handy include Waiting for the Mountain to Move, Beyond Certainty, and The Hungry Spirit.
Charles Handy is perhaps best known outside the business world as a wise and warm presenter of Radio 4's 'Thought for the Day'. Long recognised as one of the world's leading business thinkers (over a million copies of his books have been sold around the world), in Myself and Other More Important Matters he leaves the management territory he has so effectively and influentially mapped in the past to explore the wider issues and dilemmas - both moral and creative - raised by the turning.
