The tome, geared to students of business rather than students of philosophy, contains more than the passing influence of her husband.
She says that Sir Iain "read most of the text as it came hot off the word processor and eliminated some of my lapses in logic in discussing many of the issues with his usual robustness and clarity".
Acquisitive merchant bank, Singer & Friedlander, has added Steven Dotsch, formerly assistant director at Hill Samuel, to its corporate finance department as an assistant director to advise other companies on acquisitions.
S&F should know about acquisitions, having made quite a few of its own. There was Collins Stewart in 1991, insurance broker Edgar Hamilton Group in 1993 and international stockbrokers Carnegie Holding in 1994.
Better-than-expected interims reported yesterday will have Guardian's latest non-executive recruit, Sir Colin Chandler of Vickers, in good cheer.

Kenneth Ling, who was managing director of Tarmac Midland Homes, is being prosecuted by the Inland Revenue Service. He is accused of six counts of failing to provide income tax information between 1984 and 1992.
