Directors operate in a challenging environment and continue to grapple with ever expanding agendas and complex issues in the
boardroom, the Director's Handbook provides a valuable practical resource that identifies 101 topics commonly encountered
by public company directors. The first portion of each chapter sets forth a general discussion intended to provide basic context.
The second section of each chapter suggests a list of questions or issues that a director might consider in connection with
the topic at hand, including information to be sought from the company's management or advisors to inform the board's deliberations.
The final portion of each chapter identifies additional resources to which the director might turn for a more in-depth analysis
of the particular topic. This valuable resource focuses on equipping individual directors to function at a higher level by
arming them with general background on a topic and then questions to enable the director to gather the information required
to reach an informed decision. Designed as an excellent training tool for both new directors and younger lawyers entering
the governance field, the Director's Handbook discusses: - Duties, roles, and structure of the board- Governance policies-
Protecting the board- Oversight of management including selecting a CEO, governing the multinational corporation, and dealing
with the general counsel- The corporate director's role in ethics and compliance programs- Takeover preparedness- The board's

boardroom counselors who share their knowledge and expertise, and is endorsed by some of the luminaries in the field of governance.
