Book Reviews

  • 17/ The Outsiders- as CEO you're an allocator of resources ($, people, time). Being super effective at capital allocation and understanding ROIC isn't obvious to most first-time CEOs, but it is key to being great at your role. to Tweet
  • @stevenjr76 Fantastic book claiming best CEOs are experts at capital allocation. Use your stock to acquire things when stock is high. Divest when you believe you have maximized value (for you at least) within a business.Link to Tweet
  • A beautifully written #book. I wish all business books were this concise. Highly recommended. to Tweet
