Business consultant Charan (Talent Masters; Leaders at All Levels) here provides sound guidance for business leaders looking to succeed in a "tilted" world. He explains that power and influence are moving away from the United States, Europe, and Japan to China, India, Brazil, Indonesia, and Malaysia, which is, in his view, the greatest change in business history. Charan urges business and political leaders to think about complexity, speed, volatility, and uncertainty as he presents a broad-brushed, big-picture analysis of the developing economies' three percent growth per year. Tapping into this new wealth is the author's key focus, and he suggests how businesses can work from "the future back," i.e., developing a goal and then working back to the present to secure its implementation. AudioFile Best Voice winner Arthur Morey's stable, sound reading adds value to this impressive effort that draws lessons for the future from current global economic and business trends.
VERDICT This work will be of value to anyone involved in international investing and all university libraries supporting a business curriculum. ["Stories of how Fortune 500 companies are adapting to new markets give the reader some footing; otherwise, an unusually dense text discerning global trends in the marketplace," read the review of the Crown Business hc, LJ Xpress Reviews, 2/1/13.—Ed.]
