Available through major bookstores and online at www.amazon.com.

Inspired by the unconventional, yet highly successful management culture of Southwest Airlines that authors Kevin and Jackie Frieberg discussed in their first book, the Friebergs next put together a collection of companies run by “gutsy leaders.” These are the leaders who have thought outside the box of traditional management rules in favor of new approaches. In these profiles of gutsy leaders, the Friebergs identify how and why these gutsy leaders succeed, and they provide an outline for other business leaders looking to become more courageous in their approaches to business.
