This review was submitted by mauzenne.

Don't let its size be off-putting.  It always makes us laugh that the definitive, deepest book about management is not required reading, let alone a course all by itself, at MBA schools today.  Complex, layered, and complete.  The War and Peace of management literature.  Only better.

There are chapters (37 and 38 come to mind, but there are twenty others) that are so good, so insightful, so BRILLIANT that they deserve their own book.

You cannot finish a management career without reading this classic and believe you have plumbed the depths of your profession.

 A book so dense, so thought provoking and so full of wisdom it should be the basis of eveyr post graduate business course. Delve deeply and often.

Management played a  very important role in every business. When i was going to join a business at that time i joined a training session for management that helped me a lot. And now i am going to read this book for more knowledge.

To me, there is no book that can replace the experience and talent of being a good manager.  - Steven C. Wyer

I happened to find a copy of the 'Revised' version, 2008, with the updates done by Joseph Maciariello.

Has anyone read this one yet?  I suspect it is going to be mostly the same material but any surprises inside?

Thanks,

Derek
