PRAISE FOR ORGANIZATIONAL SURVIVAL:

"Fine book! What I find most impressive is the authors' success at achieving balance: Neither simply optimistic nor pessimistic, they offer grounds for hope. The book balances the need for sustainability with opportunities for its achievement. Well researched, their stories and their data come from both the developed and the developing world. The book is both deeply principled and highly pragmatic." -- Jay Ogilvy, Dean and Chief Academic Officer, Presidio School of Management

"There's no shortage of corporate sustainability books or leaders. The rarity is corporate sustainability books by leaders: people who truly understand the institutional dynamics that get in the way of change, and that can be harnessed to make change happen. Greg Balestrero and Nathalie Udo plug this gap admirably in Organizational Survival." -- Storm Cunningham, author of The Restoration Economy and reWealth

"Organizational Survival is a comprehensive approach to supporting and leading change within an organization. The practical insights, in-depth research, and business cases the authors present provide a valuable perspective on the business need for sustainability, as well as the practical assessment model and framework needed to successfully implement sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility within an organization." -- Lisa Shambro, Executive Director, Foundation for Strategic Sourcing

"Far more than a compelling case for change, Organizational Survival is a step-by-step roadmap for how to transform your corporate destiny and build a sustainable future for all." -- Simon Mainwaring, author of the New York Times bestseller We First: How Brands and Consumers Use Social Media to Build a Better World
