"The essays in How I Did It teach and inspire. Pulled directly from the pages of one of the most popular columns in Harvard Business Review, these essays offer firsthand accounts of the most difficult management challenges faced by the men and women who occupy the corner office. It's the next best thing to sitting down and talking face-to-face with these corporate leaders. Like Harvard Business Review's widely used case studies, these compelling stories take you inside the C-suite-but they go even further, offering detail and perspective available only to the leaders who experienced them. You'll hear from a range of voices and industries, including current and past leaders of companies such as Google, Xerox, General Electric, DuPont, Burberry, and many others. The candor of these first-person narratives will surprise you: many of the CEOs admit to being uncertain or nervous, at times angry, and sometimes just plain wrong. How I Did It offers readers a rare and refreshing view of what it takes to be the CEO. Let these potent stories of strategic thinking-and often bold and unconventional action-be your guide as you step into your own future as a leader. "
