Multifaceted perspectives on the world of work today and in the future—from compelling business ideas to inspiring company cultures.
The Monocle Guide to Good Business is a book for would-be business leaders, start-ups, and established companies that feel it’s time for some new ideas. It’s a book made to be used. Write in its margins and turn over the corners of its pages. But don’t expect management speak or miracles for untold riches. This is not a book about staging a revolution. Rather, this is a book about doing things well—from how you run the show to the pens you buy. And even about taking your dog to work.
The 300-page book features original photography and illustrations printed on a selection of the highest-quality papers. The Monocle Guide to Good Business is a handbook for those who want to make a company that will last; it’s the ultimate reference for doing a job you love.
Monocle magazine was launched in 2007 to provide a briefing on global affairs, business, culture, design and much more. At Monocle, they believed that there was a globally minded audience of readers who were hungry for opportunities and experiences beyond their national borders.
Outposts of opportunity, people reinventing their cities and nations, businesses rooted in their communities, wise folk with ideas that you should know about, architecture that makes you feel better.
These are just a few of the things that Monocle has been championing for the past 15 years as they have encouraged their readers and listeners to do their part, to head over the horizon to explore – and to have some fun while doing it.
Monocle is the news source for people who want to know more, hear a richness of views not just from the anglosphere and who, despite all the challenges, want to venture out into the world.
On the publishing side, Monocle also developed a book business and in 2020 launched their own independent imprint.
