This book is fantastic and I fully recommend it to anyone who wants to build or improve their management skills. It covers the concepts that every manager needs to know and practice: building relationships, performance communication, asking for more and pushing work down. The guidance in this book is clear, specific, actionable and demonstrably effective.
When I first started managing I had no clue what I was doing and all the guidance I found was generic, too general and not helpful (eg. "You should coach your people, and you coach them by coaching them, so get out there and coach them!"). The ideas and guidance contained in this book are the exact opposite. The recommendations are incredibly specific, make sense, and work! This book has detailed and actionable information on the things you can do to retain your people, deliver better results, and be a better manager.
One of the points that this book makes that I really appreciated and found helpful is the idea that anyone can be a good manager. They just need to have the willingness to learn and apply that knowledge. This book contains that knowledge, with the experience to back it. If you apply what you will learn, you too can be a good manager.
Arguably the best thing about this book is the huge array of resources available on their website at no cost. Hundreds of podcasts on nearly every topic related to management, friendly and helpful people in their forums, as well as numerous other resources. And all of it is actionable.

This is a reference for managers that want to stand out from the herd & be effective at their jobs.
For a newbie (like me) or a seasoned manager, this book gives you the tools you need to be a better more effective Manager and how to get the most out of your staff.
why didn't i get this sooner. This should be a standard training manual! I feel like I've just woken up
This audio book realigned the way I look at management. The support casts are worth 10 paid audio books. Well worth time and read 5/5 overall. Only gave this book a 4/5 for performance due to narrator being a little mechanical.
