"A pivotal work in the tradition of 'In Search of Excellence' and 'Good to Great' and featuring many of today's most interesting corporate rising stars. These are companies that blend the revolutionary zeal of the late 1990s dotcom era with an emphasis on values in a way that has set them apart from the ethical crisis gripping American business in the first years of this century."
