Reviews

"The Harvard professor's books are required reading for health care leaders tackling strategy." -- American Hospital Association "A book on understanding Porter is worthwhile because he's often misunderstood. He is widely and rightly regarded as the all-time greatest strategy guru, but that view gets the emphasis wrong." -- Fortune magazine "If you have always intended to read Michael Porter's groundbreaking management classics, but have never quite got around to doing so, Joan Magretta's Understanding Michael Porter does the hard work for you" -- Financial Mail (South Africa) "Magretta's book is a timely reminder that serves to put Porter's thinking and concepts before us again--ideas that all firms and strategy practitioners would be well-advised to study and learn from...an excellent read." -- Quality Digest "Summing Up: Highly recommended" -- CHOICE "Joan Magretta lays out Porter's ideas on competition in a concise, easy-to-read volume." -- Business Day (South Africa) "The book is a great read even for those who are looking to get initiated into the Michael Porter way of thinking" -- The Economic Times (India) "Magretta adds value through fresh case studies showing how companies such as Zara, Ikea and In-N-Out Burger deploy Porter's ideas. Written in a very accessible style, this is a book for managers rather than academics." -- The Irish Times "Ms. Magretta does a superb job of clearly and logically explaining Prof. Porter's concepts, with lots of helpful examples. This is a distillation, but it never feels sparse, with ample time for the reader to learn a concept and sufficient reinforcement of the ideas as you are guided through the Porter oeuvre. Reading it brings you up-to-date on his ideas and, more importantly, helps you to understand your own business and the strategic elements you may have missed." -- The Globe & Mail "200 pages of simple, non-faddish common sense for business." -- Anna Farmery, TheEngagingBrand.com "Book of the Month. This book will become the strategy bible for today's busy managers." -- Business Executive
