"Value Leadership is one of the best books that I have ever read because it addresses all the stakeholders -- from employees and customers to board members and investors.  Peter Cohan's Value Quotient is an excellent, pragmatic model.  If I were running a corporation today, I would adopt his philosophy and process.  I encourage business leaders faced with today's challenges to read it."
