Charles Handy’s latest book focuses on some of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and as such could prove useful background reading to prospect researchers.

Handy interviews what he calls the new alchemists, creative and successful businesspeople who have made something out of nothing, or gold out of brass. These include Trevor Baylis, Julian Richer, Ozwald Boateng, Jane Tewson, Charles Dunstone, and of course Richard Branson.

The interviews are accompanied by portrait photographs by Handy’s wife Elizabeth.
