Are there any aspiring book reviewers out there? After only three weeks -
CREATING TOMORROW'S ORGANIZATION is already being reprinted.

As a consequence, the publishers (and authors!) have requests to have the
book reviewed in several journals and magazines - and we are now being
asked to suggest expert reviewers. We particularly need to find people
whose interest area is Organizational Transformation / Development / BPR
(Chapters 8,9) and Network and Learning Organization (Chapters 4,5). If
you are interested in writing a review for a journal, Kim Whiting at
Pitman/FT would like to hear from you (address below), or you can email

Also if you currently write reviews for (or edit) a relevant journal, and
would like to be considered for a review copy, please email me with
journal name/publisher details, and your mailing address. I will pass this
on to our publishers who cover most parts of the world.

Brief details about the book are attached. Thanks also to all in this
forum who have read the book and mailed us comments!
