The Monocle Guide to Good Business (Extended Version)

Our new Monocle book is an ultimate reference for doing a job you love. The book is available now!
Posted by Angie—08/2014

The Monocle Guide to Good Business is a book for would-be business leaders, start-ups and established companies that feel it’s time for some new ideas. This extended video goes behind the scenes to talk to the editors of the book and to take a look inside the covers.

But don’t expect management speak, nor miracles for untold riches. It’s not a book about staging a revolution. It’s a book about doing things well (from how you run the show to the pens you buy). And even taking your dog to work. The 300-page book features original photography and illustrations printed on a selection of the highest-quality papers; it’s a handbook for those who want to make a company that will last.

The Monocle Guide to Good Business is an ultimate reference for doing a job you love. You may now purchase the book at Gestalten Stores or through our webshop here.
