The San Francisco Chronicle calls the A Manager’s Guide a “highly readable book, like the authors latest’s ‘A Family and Friend’s Guide to Sexual Orientation,’ it is as much about straight people as homosexuals.“
The Advocate writes: …publishers [Routledge, 1995] are giving their books top billing – with large promotions budgets and multicity book tours – spotlighting the concerns of lesbian and gay employees as never before. A Manager’s Guide has an easy-to-read, warm-fuzzy (but decidedly nonlinear) quality of such issues as why managers should care about sexual orientation issues…and [lists] 101 ways to make a workplace more inclusive.
“This book will change the way we manage all people, regardless of their sexual orientation.” – Alvin Hageman, Managing Director, Citicorp
