It is a bit of a short read, but excellent information, especially for new managers. The format is a man who approaches a friend of his fathers for Mentoring Advice. The story progresses over 8 weeks, with the Mentor guiding the Manager through workplace challenges and lessons. There is an "action plan" at the end of each meeting (chapter), and a recap in the following week. At the end of the book, there is a summary of "to do's". A very good read!
