This is a really good resource, relevant, concise and easy to understand. I wish we used this at work- it might help ease the transition into a management or supervisory position tremendously!

If you could sum up The First-Time Manager in three words, what would they be?
Lots of tricks and tips and how to become great at observing and feeling the situation.

Generally this is an interesting piece of work, however about two thirds of the way through it started to ramble on about various sets of US legislation (in fact it almost sounds like they were added to pad out a section). All acts of legislation mentioned are not valid in the UK and this really distracted from the text.
The general concepts covered are good but think they are equally, if not better, covered elsewhere.

No joke it does exactly what it says on the 'tin'. I bought this as I have been a manager for a number of years and offered to mentor a new manager. I thought I would give it a go to pick up some tips and tricks I could adjust with a dose of reality, so I had low expectation and was ready for business school blah blah. I was pleasantly surprised about its accuracy and reality. It really does tell it like it is and great practical advice. Not all companies, teams and jobs are the same but for my money this a pretty all encompassing description one could expect of what it is like and how get into the right habits
Certainly worth the money if you are about to or have just become a manager. Frankly no harm as a refresher for us old dogs either
