Reviews - What do customers think about Corporate Canaries: Avoid Business Disasters with a Coal Miner's Secrets?

Don't underestimate this quick read  Jan 18, 2008
In 2005, I joined a company that I was told would close within 6 weeks. When I arrived the two guys in charge were trying to guess what the last day would be. I disagreed with their assessment of the company & took some steps to turn the company around. After these were successful I was able to persuade them to try a few more steps. 20 months after I arrived, the company completed a profitable year & was headed in the right direction. Then I read this book. I was amazed at how closely the points in the book matched the steps I had taken to turn around the company. So I know first hand that this works, & that alot of organizations just don't make priorities of the points listed therein. I moved on to another company that was struggling & I've done alot of the same things again, with similar results. Read this book & follow the lessons within. Your organization will be better for it.
 
Business   Jan 15, 2007
Interesting read. You will definitely identify descriptions of people you work with or have worked with. Some good basic insights.
 
Corporate Canaries - A great Reality Check!  Mar 6, 2006
This was a very easy read and very insightful. There is much wisdom in the straight-forward teachings of the author and his grandfather. And it is wonderfully current! A must read for anyone interested in business acumen.
 
An easy read insurance policy for averting corporate disasters  Jan 11, 2006
This short book given its attempt to be simple in delivering five key lessons (plus wrap it around with some savvy homely anecdotes of his grandfather's mining experiences in pioneering times to fill out the book) is likely to leave most business book readers feeling short changed one suspects.

Sutton's turn around credentials and war stories underpin the five rules and as with many such books the five (which can be written in less than half a page) will not be new or unknown to most readers. Where the pinch comes is that Sutton's real theme based on the number of basket case companies he has been involved with, seems to be acceptance his book will not be immediately of use but once read should be kept in a bottom drawer for reference to when things start to go wrong and application of one of the lessons will he argues apply.

I would class it as an easy two hour maximum read - food for thought but not going to get you fired up as to what you might do new unless you are in the unfortunate position of being in a company that is actually heading for or going into tailspin.
 
Must Read For Managers  Dec 5, 2005
Corporate Canaries is one of the few business books I have come across and was better off after having read it. I have since changed my entire approach to managing and feel more secure as a result. I found it to be an easy read and it's not terribly long as well. Lots of great information and lessons packed into this little package!
