This book is a foundation of my library on organizations and organizational change. It was a seminal book for me and laid the ground work for my professional life. He we the first, I believe to expand our understanding of the company by the use the concept of "stakeholder." A term that is now common place. In fact many of the concepts he first introduced in this book have become part of the main stream vocabulary, and indication of his prescience!
