Sir Bob, former chair of Shell UK among much else, lost his right hand aged 9, learnt to write with his left and won a golfing blue at University before turning to business. This inspirational portrait of successful leadership tells how he steered global organisations through the best and worst of times by gaining trust and valuing the individual.

"tightly packed with information and sprinkled with wry anecdotes"

A keen and accomplished golfer, Reid clearly understands the importance of getting out of the rough in the boardroom, stresses how vital it is for business leaders to look at the whole picture, and warns of the perils of succumbing to greed. ... This book provides valuable advice for anyone navigating business challenges, then, but also much broader lessons on humility and coping with adversity, all told in compelling fashion.
