What Others Are Saying About
Winning Big in HR:
take years to learn all this on your own
"Without a doubt
the most practical HR book I've ever picked up. It would take
you years to gain all this HR wisdom on your own. I
particularly enjoyed Alan Collins' inclusion of advice on how to
manage the tough client and how to get other people to give a damn about
you and your career in HR. The whole book is uplighting and right on the money."
Amy Goldridge, SPHR, GPHR, Manager -
Talent Development, IBM
"Alan Collins has hit the nail on
the head with this book! HR professionals who are interested
in enhancing their career opportunities for advancement, this is the
book for you! There is nothing on the market that breaks it
down on how to REALLY build a successful HR career. Most are
left to figure those things out on their own. With this book,
you are getting first hand information from a true HR executive."

Authentic, gets to the point
with the good stuff
'get to the point with the good stuff' kind of person,
this book provides HR information just the way I like
to get it. It's cuts to the chase and easy to
read. I enjoyed Alan's authentic
real-life examples which resonate strongly with
me. One of the scarcest resources an HR
professional has is time and this book was the best
use of mine in a long time. I highly recommend

use his blog and books not only for my own development

We've had a great time discussing and debating his
articles as part of my offsite meetings. I'll be
getting more copies of this book and sharing it with

Very inspirational, practical
and made me laugh out loud
finished this book and not only was it inspiration, it
was practical and made me laugh out loud. It
gave me some excellent ideas on solving a couple of
client issues our HR department is facing right
now. I've ordered copies for all my staff
members. Alan has written yet another book that
you'll find yourself referring to time and time again.
A must read!"
