Praise For Emperors' Clothes

''From the jump, Emperors' Clothes is riveting entertainment. Packing in an insatiable quest for power -- and the resulting collateral damage -- plus human frailty and desire, Emperors' Clothes keeps you on the edge of your seat. In this action-packed tale of colorful characters, corporate intrigue and mob-influenced talent management schemes, Cathy McGuinness marries her masterful writing skills and extensive business experience to remind us of three important leadership qualities - integrity, values and courage!'' --Linda Rebrovick, Chief Executive Officer, Consensus Point

''Emperors' Clothes is a must-read for every executive search consultant, corporate recruiter and anyone who has ever been 'headhunted'. Emperors' Clothes uncovers the narcissism and nonsense that goes on in the recruiting game as people on both sides of the desk try to move up the ladder.'' --Deborah Sawyer, Managing Director, Executive Advisors; also, former Senior Client Partner, Korn Ferry International
