Interesting for everyone who wants to balance his professional and personal life based on realistic goals, action plans and priorities, rather than just wait and see' - "Westlandsche Courant". 'Talent in action is an outstandingly entertaining book, that's the least we can say. The fact is that author Georges Anthoon draws from his own experience and motives. He interlaces his story with lots of 'asides', illustrative anecdotes of colleagues, staff members, friends. All this makes it a pleasure to read' - "HR Magazine".
