MANAGING TRANSITIONS, William Bridges, Nicholas Brealey Publishing pounds 10.99

Calm, lucid and encouraging, Bridges' book remains a classic nine years after it first appeared. Praise indeed in a time of such change. His range of anecdotes and quotations is impressive, his arguments logical and persuasive. ***

THE MANAGING CHANGE POCKETBOOK, Neil Russell-Jones, Management Pocketbooks pounds 6.99

A useful fact-checking primer for the busy executive, but not a piece of analysis to compare with Bridges' work. Fun and helpful to dip into before difficult meetings, with some good essential messages. But there is more to change than is contained here. **

BECOMING DYNAMIC, David Jackson, Macmillan Business pounds 25

A lively and enthusiastic account of the challenges involved in change, illustrated with a generous range of relevant examples. Interesting insights into avoiding pitfalls, including a discussion of the need for 'communi-action'. Solid. **

*** best of its kind
