Editorial Reviews

"A pertinent and timely read in these difficult times." Baron David de Rothschild, Chairman, Rothschild"Yilmaz Argüdens untiring campaign to promote good corporate governance in Turkey is largely responsible for the priority it has today among both businesses and the public at large. Drawing on his vast experience, Dr. Argden offers invaluable insights and universal guidelines for a wide range of management decisions that impact corporate governance. I have no doubt that Boardroom Secrets will become a reference book for businesses everywhere as they seek to rebuild the trust of their stakeholders in the years ahead."Blent Eczacibasi, Chairman, Eczacibasi Holding "Shareholders, directors and top managers will welcome this wise, insightful, and practical book sharing the author's extensive experience. I know of no better single source for getting it right in the boardroom. Read these secrets, apply them diligently, and improve your boards performance."Prof. David R. Beatty O.B.E., Founding Managing Director, The Canadian Coalition for Good Governance."The unfolding financial and economic crisis has fundamentally been due to a wide ranging failure of corporate governance. Dr. Argüden's book focusing on governance as a culture and a climate is based on insights coming form long experience and will be invaluable to all who must try to rebuild the world economy on more solid foundations." Kemal Dervis, Head of UNDP"The global financial and economic crisis is above all a corporate governance crisis. Dr. Argden's book provides timely insight and guidance for how the fundamentals of good governance can be improved."Prof. Klaus Schwab, Founder and Chairman, World Economic Forum"Perfect timing for a book containing carefully researched, cross-national prescriptions for ethical and effective corporate governance. This should be a valuable resource for leaders in both the commercial and non-profit sectors."Michael D. Rich, Executive Vice President, RAND Corporation"In these times of serious economic crisis the value of strong corporate governance becomes even more apparent. Yilmaz Argdens book shows this in a clear and concise way. It is a valuable contribution."Mustafa V. Ko, Chairman, Ko Holding"In this wise and practical book, Yilmaz Argüden argues that trust lies at the heart of corporate governance. The book offers a clearly expressed vision of how that trust can be built in individual companies. It will be of significant use in guiding the thinking of board members and company stakeholders alike."Dr. Roger Barker, Head of Corporate Governance, Institute of Directors (London)"I wish Boardroom Secrets had been available when I was getting a start in business 35 years ago. I would have read it line by line and my business life would have been much more effective. New generation business leaders are fortunate to have this reference book available for them. Thank you, Yilmaz...."Tuncay zilhan, Chairman and CEO, Anadolu Efes
