Charles Handy is often described, in one of those rather hyperbolical phrases, as 'Britain's only world-class management guru'. This can be challenged - for one thing, Handy is Irish born and, for another, his remit runs wider than management.
But he is certainly a distinguished bestselling author and thinker, with over a dozen books to his name.
In The Hungry Spirit he marked a formal shift from the narrower world of management writing into something broader.
