ADVANCE PRAISE FOR UNEQUALED

"This book is a testament to Jim Runde′s contributions to the investment banking industry and his invaluable insights and mentoring of colleagues over four decades. Runde presents an indispensable guide to those who would like to refine their performance, build and maintain client relationships, advance their careers, lead with exceptional ideas, and distinguish themselves as professionals."
COLM KELLEHER, PRESIDENT, MORGAN STANLEY

"There could not be a better compass with which to navigate a career in any service profession than this gem of a book. This is a must–read for any young banker, lawyer, or other professional."
THOMAS J. REID, MANAGING PARTNER, DAVIS POLK

"Jim Runde′s book answers the many questions professionals would benefit from asking but often don′t. His practical advice and clear, simple guidance on what to do, and how to behave on critical dimensions of client service are tips from which all service professionals could benefit. I wish I had read them during, not after, my 27–year career in consulting."
NORA AUFREITER, DIRECTOR EMERITUS, MCKINSEY & COMPANY
