Reviews

"Despite much progress in recent years, gay rights issues around the world remain a serious problem. The Glass Closet by John Browne is a brave and fascinating book that shows how businesses can lead the way in promoting gay rights and why being yourself is best for business and for you." * Sir Richard Branson, Chairman Virgin Group * "Personal and instructive, The Glass Closet provides a compelling roadmap to what, as a society and as individuals, we can achieve if LGBT men and women are completely free from prejudice and anxiety because of who they are." * Lloyd Blankfein, Chairman and CEO Goldman Sachs * "Lord Browne has written a book of unfl inching honesty and lasting social value. In it he says, `You will do more to better the world when you can be authentic.' It took much of his remarkable career for him to reach that conclusion; but in doing so, he makes it infi nitely easier for others to follow." * Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO WPP * "This is a brave book. It takes a subject hardly ever discussed in global business, gay rights, and blows apart misconceptions." * Martha Lane Fox, Founder lastminute.com * "How many of your people are living a double life? How many are wasting energy and emotion keeping their closet closed? Business leaders are used to shaping their worlds, to making a diff erence. This is one place we can, and should." * Peter Sands, CEO Standard Chartered *
