Oops-it’s past time for NextDay delivery by tomorrow. This book is not a "how to" manual to tell you what you should do; rather it is meant as a coaching session with you one-on-one. My job as your business coach is not to tell you what to do or to give you the answers, but to ask the right questions or to give you opportunities to think, so that you come up with the answers appropriate for your business and for yourself.

Absolutely, not just another leadership book with platitudes and blah, blah, blah. This truly is a definitive and, as the name says, practical guide for business leadership.....I think it should be mandatory reading for all entrepreneur types as well as business leaders who are experiencing a plateau in their growth and development. Viva does an outstanding job of addressing the critical leader issue and helping us understand how to effectively coach that person. It is lonely at the top....but Viva makes it much less so with wisdom and experience....a must-have book for every consultant and leadership coach. Definitely one of the best if not THE best that I've read.

As a fellow Business Coach, I can say Oswald nailed it. It takes effective leadership and a strong company culture to sustain and grow businesses. Oswald's tips show leaders how to do just that. The book provides business owners with a solid plan to grow profits and create a great workplace.

If you are looking for a book that you can both read, and then keep around for reference, this fills the bill nicely. Mr. Viva walks through the issues and roles of leading a company step-by-step. It is organized both chronologically (through an owner's career from becoming a CEO to exiting) and functionally (chapters on delegating, planning, culture and accountability).

Perhaps the best part is when the author steps out of the book to lend personal narrative. "From my bag" has anecdotes and real-life situations from his own business experience, and "Coaching Tips" gives you advice on implementing as if he were sitting in the room with you.

I plan on adding this to our library for business owner clients, and am sure we will give away many copies in the future.

Viva's book is a masterpiece of reality. It should be a MUST READ for all entrepreneurs, budding entrepreneurs, CEOs, GMs, and professional coaches. Loaded with real concerns, situations and fears of those at the top, it presents a reader-friendly pathway to achieving excellence in management and leadership. I have strongly recommended it to scores of clients and business associates and it gets rave reviews from all who have an open mind. I makes us feel that although we are still in command, we are no longer alone. The helpful self-questionnaires and planning guides are a welcome (yet rare) addition to the work.

It's Lonely At The Top is clearly what it bills itself to be -- a practical guide for business owners. But it is much more, it is a reference tool owners will refer to time and time again. Whether a strategic issue around business direction, structure or leadership, or more tactical issues such as managing employees, working through cash flow issues or any of the myriad of questions that arise on a daily basis, Mr. Oswald's real world experience and expertise presents solutions and a path forward in clear, concise and yes, practical manner. In my work with business owners, this book is now a staple.

It is lonely at the top and who can you trust for real advice? All CEOs suspect employees do not always tell you the straight picture. Lawyers, accountants and consultants can help, but few have actual business experience and practical advice beyond their specialty training.

Oswald Viva's book fills a need and contains a lifetime of education, training and experience as a former CEO and as a successful coach to non-Fortune 500 CEOs.

The coaching suggestions are particularly useful and the book can be an on-going reference guide for the new or seasoned CEO. Enjoy the read.

I was given this book as a gift. It took me about 10 seconds to realize this was a practical read with a lot of take home value for a business owner. This is the type of book that makes a difference even if the reader only takes out a few things that they use regularly in their business and there are more than a few things to extract.
Insightful and educational! Was hard to put down. Learned new and productive ways to help run my small business. Thanks!
