About the Author

Dr Patrick Reedy, Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour, Nottingham University Business School, UK


'This is a must-read book for anyone interested in identity issues in contemporary work organizations. Keenly researched and effectively theorized, this is a welcome addition to the fields of narrative and identity.' Andrew D. Brown, University of Bath, UK 'Being a manager involves making compromises, and telling stories to yourself and others. Patrick Reedy's book tells the tale of a group of managers, and beautifully explores issues of identity, life history and class. It will be relevant to anyone who holds a position of authority, or wants to understand what authority does to others.' Martin Parker, University of Leicester, UK
