Cornerstone buys business book from ex-Tesco c.e.o.

Former Tesco c.e.o. Sir Terry Leahy has written a business book for Cornerstone.

Random House Business Books publishing director Nigel Wilcockson bought world rights to Ten Management Lessons by Sir Terry through Danny Stern and Kirsten Soehngen Karp of Daniel R Stern Speakers. RHBB plans to publish in hardback and e-book in June 2012, with a mass-market paperback edition to follow in 2013.

Sir Terry stepped down as c.e.o. of Tesco in February 2011 after 14 years in the role, and the book sees him distil a "lifetime's experience at the forefront of business".

Wilcockson said: "There are few business leaders with as impressive a track record as Sir Terry Leahy. His clarity of thought and vision is extraordinary and his new book offers fascinating insights into the workings of a brilliant business mind."
