Written in the accessible style of Seth Godin and Spencer Johnson, The Loudest Duck is a business fable which offers readers an alternate view of diversity through the use of practical stories and cultural anecdotes.  It will explain, for instance, how a culture such as China teaches its children, "The loudest duck gets shot," a viewpoint that gets carried into adulthood, while many Americans are taught the opposite idiomatic lesson: "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."  What you find as a result are two distinct ways of doing business, neither one being necessarily the right way or even the better way.  Yet by understanding the viewpoints from which others see the world, readers can understand how better to work with them.  The Loudest Duck is a book for managers and executives faced with the productivity and leadership challenges of a heterogeneous, multicultural workplace. It's a book for anyone working his or her way up the ladder in this new corporate world order.  It's a book for anyone who belongs to a non-dominant group, be it women, people of color, short people, or employees who don't play golf but whose bosses do.
