Acquisition Reviews


Reviews from the first edition:

'Acquisition: Strategy and Implementation is an excellent book...read it now rather than waiting to hear that your employer is acquiring another company or is being acquired.' - Ambassador

'I found myself nodding in agreement and mouthing the occasional 'Aha!' as I read, and I think other HR professionals will do the same...I found a wealth of good advice, tools and checklists here...readable, clearly laid out and packed full of good practical advice. It is essential reading for anyone who is involved in, or contemplating a merger or acquisition and I, for one, will be keeping it close to hand.' - Martin Hayton, HR Director, Cable & Wireless Communications, in People Management

'Very readable...an indispensable handbook on a subject affecting more businesses and stakeholders every year.' - The Director

'A well-researched and clearly-written guide to successful acquiring.' - Roger Carr, Chief Executive, Williams PLC

'Everything you want to know about acquisition explained with clarity and with perception for both the practising manager and the aspiring academic.' - Professor John McGee, University of Warwick

'Nancy Hubbard's excellent study provides [an] interesting assessment of the way people behave during an acquisition and gives clear practical guidance about the issues to be faced.' - Sir David Rowland, Deputy Chairman, Natwest Group

'Nancy Hubbard's very detailed research of good and bad acquisitions, matched with consulting experience, shows what can go wrong and how to get it right.' - Professor John Purcell, Bath University
