Inspiring and accessible, "Mavericks at Work" is for anyone who wants to succeed in business - from the entry-level employee to the CEO.

From break-the-mould innovators such as HBO, Pixar, and Netflix to global giants such as IBM and Procter & Gamble, these mavericks are winning big by devising new answers to the oldest (and toughest) challenges of competition and leadership.
