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.

I have met both Mark and Michael Auzenne. My know them and their background. This book is written with a lot of care and thought after years of on the feet, active management in the rules they discuss.
They have compile data from users, clients, their own organizations at all levels and The in valuable feedback from their clients of the Manager Tools community.
The authors style is direct and six-inch being very results oriented and helpful without a lot of frothy anecdotal stories, jokes or silliness. This is a very matter-of-fact clean, concise yet easy to read guide for the professional. This book is a Sapir your guide for professional managers at any level in in any kind of situation. They are code of ethics and approach homogeneously covers every situation and with the book doesn’t cover in depth is backed up with their large library a free online content related to the book.
I am thankful for this volume and have gained tremendous insights, chips, and tools to become a better manager. I could not be more thankful to the team and the author, Mark Horstman.
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.
