Bruce Piasecki's The Surprising Solution
Reviewed by BusinessBookReview.com

Book Review (PDF) • July 27, 2010
'The world is changing at lightning speed, and only companies that understand the new realities of the global marketplace and pursue both innovation and sustainability will be equipped to prosper. In The Surprising Solution, author Bruce Piasecki addresses "how to best align going green and solving social problems with going global." It is a "declaration of interdependence, showing all capitalists and policymakers that the global economy is based on shared physical constraints in our world."

'According to Piasecki, globalization is a driving force in modern industrial society, and it encompasses social change, product change, and leadership challenges. At the core of a successful, contemporary business strategy is the concept of Social Response Capitalism, a business model that puts social concerns on par with price and performance as corporate goals. Based on his in-depth analysis of the global economy and his work with hundreds of multinational corporations, Piasecki's principles will help companies "surf" this new wave of change, navigating to success and profitability while simultaneously "making a better world."'

— From the "Introduction" (review by Diane Castro)
