Todd Cherches book review
Congratulations to my Marshall Goldsmith’s “MG 100 Coaches” colleague, Todd Cherches, for being selected on the just announced ‘Top 50 Global Thought Leaders on Management.’
Coincident with the ‘Top 50’ announcement, Todd was reading my book and here is his review.
"They say you can’t judge a book by its cover – or by its title – but I was immediately intrigued and hooked by both when introduced to Ken Pasternak’s wonderful new work, “Exploding Turkeys and Spare Trousers.” Part travelogue, part memoir, and part business book, with each vignette the author transports us in time and place, taking us along with him on a journey of international exploration and discovery. Through his insightful and often-humorous storytelling, reading this snapshot-filled book often felt like a chat with an old friend walking you through his business trip photo album, sharing one interesting and entertaining tale after another…each accompanied by a universal lesson in leadership and in life. And, as it can be read in any order – either from start-to-finish or at random – these light and tasty, appetizer-sized chapters collectively add up to one sumptuous and memorable meal."
