"On The Balcony is an eclectic assemblage of meditative essays on everything from management science to personal loss. It’s a scattershot mosaic of remembrances, philosophical considerations, inspirational motivation and business advice. The prose is consistently clear and sometimes reaches for the poetic. He manages to spice up the exploration of dry, technical issues with an infusion of personal anecdotes and lighthearted humor. A lucid, sometimes-endearing read." - March 2014
