As the books jacket explains, this is a book of fundamental management concepts that have been compiled based on scientific research rather than simple conjecture. I have been a manager for over 15 years and I have read countless management books and I find this to be a great compilation of management principles. From the seasoned manager with years of experience to the freshly minted manager on the first day of being in the chair there is much to take away from this short read.

Managing People is Very Good
Really good book..went back and listened to it and took some notes. Some things only applied to larger businesses but some real gems were applicable to any manager. I thought it was really good and would recommend it highly for some good basic and very useful tips.
