A timely look at cost-cutting in a downturn. Cost-cutting may be an unglamorous subject for a business author. But it is an undeniably timely one. Andrew Wileman has produced a practical and readable book, shot through with appealing empathy for struggling firms. Managers of smaller firms who cannot afford consultants and don t have time to peruse management journals should find Mr Wileman's book especially useful. Nuggets of advice come thick and fast, covering customers, suppliers and staff. Mr Wileman's prose brims with useful tips; dry business theory is handled lightly; personal anecdotes are actually amusing; and each chapter closes with a summary presented in bullet points.

Mr Wileman's text is irrepressible: jaunty, energetic and all-knowing. The author knows his subject. He has been cutting swaths through flabby balance sheets and cost structures for three decades. Although he is evangelical about managing costs, Mr Wileman remains realistic. He is neither vandal nor sadist. Clients will be grateful for his distinctive blend of candour and can-do.
The Financial Times - Stefan Stern
