In late 2003, Peter Drucker invited Jeffrey Krames to his home in Claremont, California, for a rare interview. The 94-year-old Drucker, who had amassed an unprecedented body of published work, comprised of many hundreds of thousands of pages, spent a full day sharing his insights from a lifetime of management consulting and writing.
This resulting audiobook is a simple guide that distills the essential wisdom from Drucker's considerable body of work. It includes:

By including many contemporary examples, this audiobook brings a part of Drucker's incredible body of knowledge to life and shows how so many of his seminal ideas are as relevant now as when they were written.

Learn From the Master

The author shares what he learned during an extended interview of the 94 year old Drucker in 2003 which proved to be one of Drucker's last interviews. There is an abundance of information, insights, and wisdom and if you aren't already well versed in Drucker's thought, this informative audio is a great introduction. Yes, reading Peter Drucker's own three-dozen plus books and myriad articles is the ideal way to learn directly from the master, but this audio makes it possible to feel as if we are in Peter Drucker's presence, and achieves that to an extent no one else has.

A thoughtful perspective on Drucker...

This book is a thorough review of the life and work of Peter Drucker. It educates in a very pleasant fashion. It's a must read to anyone who has never been exposed to Drucker's ideas. And brings a different perspective about his work to any student of Drucker's.
