It's incredible to see how modern leadership mantras - high
ambition, fused diversity, constant learning - have been at the
centre of the highest performing sports teams for decades.
Beautifully synthesised by Will and Ben, these lessons from the
very best are gold for anyone who shares their belief that 'nothing
beats winning together'. * Alan Jope, CEO of Unilever *
This is not just a great sports book, or a great business book, it's a great book about sport and business. I've known Will and Ben for a long time and they are two of the sharpest minds around. This is an essential read for anyone who wants to lead and win. * Sir Clive Woodward *
