"I really loved the book, finished reading it in a week. Bill's book is very insightful and inspiring. Congratulations to him for this pioneering effort to get best-in-class practices in P&G's supply chain known to the rest of the world."

Sachin Mirashi, Associate Director, P&G Product Supply - Australia/New Zealand


"The book is an amazing trip down memory lane of logistics inventions, interventions, and many names of good old P&G friends. Bill did a great job of capturing the changes and keeping his personality alive - together. I bought a second copy for a colleague as a must read."

Jeanne Reisinger, Director - Product Supply, The Procter & Gamble Co.


"Thanks so much for your book! The human element sections were great, like leading/managing, coaching/teaching. After retiring from Levi Strauss, I wish I could have another career to put some of your suggested practices in place. Being very right-brain, reading 'Unique Human Element Factors and Skills Needed in Developing Markets' was very inspirational and totally appropriate. I saw so many managers sent to these markets fail because of their lack of knowledge and skills." 

Patrick Percey, National Business Manager, Levi Strauss Australia - retired

Merrill Almquist - Executive Director of Procurement, General Motors Corporation - Retired
