“I usually measure the ‘value’ of a business magazine by the percentage of articles that are directly relevant to my corporate role. Over the last year or so, I have found that strategy+business grades out at about 75 percent on this scale, making it by far the highest ‘value’ business magazine I read.” — Mel Bost, ConocoPhilips
“My only disappointment is that the magazine comes only four times a year. I am left wanting more!” — James O’Toole, the Bill Daniels Distinguished Professor in Business Ethics at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business, author of Creating the Good Life: Applying Aristotle's Wisdom to Find Meaning and Happiness (and s+b contributor)
