This is a book about the CEO you might know and see as he tries to do his job. It is about his efforts and what you can learn from them whether he succeeds or fails. Chock full of real-life examples and stories, the author presents the consequences of "sinful" CEO actions, how to avoid those actions, how to find redemption, and advising us all to take to heart these fateful lessons.
