Strategy Bites Back is the antidote to conventional strategy books — and conventional strategy formation. Edited by the legendary Henry Mintzberg, it contains contributions from everyone from Gary Hamel to Napoleon Bonaparte, Michael Porter to Hans Christian Andersen: essays, poems, case studies, cartoons, whatever it takes to 'free your mind' and unleash the crucial emotional side of strategy formation.

Coverage includes: strategy and brinkmanship, culture, seduction; strategy lessons from your mother, from beehives, chess grandmasters, even the National Zoo. Along the way, Mintzberg and his colleagues take on the sacred cows and entrenched beliefs that keep strategists from recognizing their most powerful options. Strategy Bites Back doesn't just make strategy fun: it helps define strategies that offer huge upsides and real inspiration.


"Having previously read Strategy Safari by the same author and enjoyed it for its clarity and common sense, I was keen to delve into this - their latest offering... The bytes are... short and punchy... Many are very funny, but all are thought provoking in their own way... it provides some insightful reflections on the component parts of business strategy... a readable book that also made me laugh." — Kathy Osborne, March Human Resources Magazine
