My book

After twenty+ years in business (and forty+ years in life), I decided to share my experience and thoughts in a book, entitled “Labyrinth: The Art of Decision-Making” (“Labirynt. Sztuka podejmowania decyzji”), that was published in December 2014 and quickly became Harvard Business Review Poland’s all-time bestselling title. Since March 4, 2015, it has been available in the best bookstores across Poland and in May 2015, it won the “Golden Owl’ award during the International Book Fair in Warsaw. It was recognized by the Polish Business Trainer’s Association as well, both by the jury of the contest as well as by the readers. The book will be published in English in 2018.

I will be happy to sign my book for you. Please contact me.
