Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

What could the world's greatest writer possibly have to teach up about the modern business world?

Shakespeare's well loved body of work is analysed by 26 leading business writers, demonstrating how the truths of each play are still relevant in today's contemporary business world.

In this fascinating collection of essays, themes as old as time: politics and power; double-speak and double-dealing; ambition and avarice are brought to light with fresh insights into how modern management, workers, and corporations behave.

Inspirational and thought-provoking, these pertinent observations serve to cultivate new and creative lessons for today's workplace.

    Comments about The Bard and Co.:

    I have supplied copies to my School, for my English Faculty colleagues, who have commented on its usefulness for students undertaking the Senior Curriculum. Students are required to apply the themes of Shakespeare to other aspects of modern life. Many choose business ethics.
