How Companies Really Grow by Ciaran Walsh

The first to deal with the phases of company growth in detail, How Companies Really Grow is a reality check for consultants, business advisers and entrepreneurs, disproving many business school theories. The book sets out each of the seven phases of company growth, from creation to division. With one look, you can find out what phase your company is at - and how to manage the company in that phase of growth. Knowing what phase comes next as the company grows allows appropriate preparation, reducing anxiety and leading to properly managed growth. A book that should be in every consultant, business adviser and entrepreneur's collection, How Companies Really Grow deals with many high-level concepts whilst being easy to read. Author Ciaran Walsh uses real life examples from past client experience, setting out what not to do as well as what to do, making company growth easier for managers and advisers. Ciaran is inspired by Peter Drucker, who wrote The Effective Executive, and Henry Mintzberg, author of Management.

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Jocelyn Garvey

I love Lovereading for the wonderful like for like author recommendations and for highlighting new books, it's a great resource for readers!


A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
