This book takes a very critical look at management fads and fashions and shows that many do not stand up to scrutiny. It is believed for example that coaching is successful. What is the evidence for this? Selection procedures at interviews result in the right candidate being selected. Again what is the evidence? The author shows that many fads and fashions in management are short lived and based upon flimsy evidence, yet enjoy a period of support. His book will be an important tool for managers who want to understand the substance and rigour or lack of it associated with modern management ideas and concepts.

Capital Returns brings together industrial economics, Michael Porter's competitive analysis and behavioral finance, into a powerful long-term investment approach that Marathon Asset Management calls `capital cycle' analysis. ... This is one of the best investing books I've read. Highly recommended!" (Strictly Value, strictlyvalue.wordpress.com, January, 2016) "First, it covers an important and underappreciated subject, the capital cycle. Second, it contains a superb introduction by one of the great financial writers of our era, Edward Chancellor. ... Capital Returns explores an oft-neglected mechanism in the capital markets. It will prove profitable reading for any finance professional, and for the securities analyst, it is essential reading." (William J. Bernstein, CFA Institute Publications, cfapubs.org, Vol. 11 (1), 2016)
