The five million copy best-selling series
John Winterson Richards has degrees in both law (which he has ignored ever since) and business administration (which taught him one valuable lesson: the only people who make money through MBAs are University Business Schools). He is not, of course, a manager himself -- no definitely not - but an established and successful leader of international commerce. If you have never heard of him it is because, like all truly powerful men, he likes to work behind the scenes. Thomas Drewry graduated with a first class degree in Economics and Finance from a distinguished French university before working for the corporate finance departments of two distinguished investment banks, one British, one Dutch, both defunct. He soon realised that banking involved working very long hours and a great deal of numbers he did not always understand the meaning of, so set his sights on entrepreneurship instead, having heard that it was the new rock 'n' roll.
'The Bluffer's Guides present the means to apparent instant erudition without actually having to know or study anything.' THE DAILY MAIL 'An amazing amount of solid fact disguised as frivolous observation.' THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'A series which threatens to undermine the proper foundations of knowledge.' TODAY 'A witty dissection of the follies of entrepreneurship. It will surely bring a smile to the lips of anyone who has ever started their own company.' -- Luke Johnson, entrepreneur and FT columnist
