"This book will be a winner as Sá offers the most comprehensive treatment and assessment of attack and defense business strategies. It is guaranteed to stimulate your strategic and tactical imagination."
Philip Kotler
Professor at Northwestern University, founder of modern marketing
“Exceptionally well written and all business books should be this way.”
Al Ries
Author of the bestsellers Positioning, Marketing Warfare, etc.
“Professor Jorge Sá’s book Anergy is one of those occasional milestones in management history that we’ve all been waiting for. Much has been written on strategy but no one has produced it in the same disciplined scheduled form that can be applied in practice. The prime importance of strategy was identified by Peter Drucker as early as 1954 in his The Practice of Management where he stressed the essentials, but as Jorge correctly records, he never scheduled the steps. No doubt Drucker would have commended Jorge’s extension of his life’s work.”
Peter Starbuck
Chairman of the Peter Drucker London Society
“A very important book with great practical value."
Karl Moore
Professor at McGill University, Canada
“A great joy. Loaded with clear examples, and backed up by rigorous theory, a fundamental book for the multibusiness firm strategist”
Donald Hambrick
Evan Pugh Professor and Smeal Chaired Professor of Management, The Pennsylvania State University
“This book provides one of the clearest, most engaging discussions I’ve ever seen of how to balance the here-and-now of a business with the future. Managers who are dealing with these difficult, uncertain times will benefit from reading it. Professor Sá has done it again!”
