A great book for everyone not only for managers

Some words of the book::
-every organization needs a mission.

Ok, let's be honest. I would have never read this had it not been required for school. It's a textbook. It reads slightly better than some textbooks I've read, but it's still a textbook. Has some good insight into management, and some cool case studies.

McGill, AGEC 242 - Management. Worst course ever! is it me or management is a study that translate simple words into difficult and confusing terminology. Nothing is really new, everything is just common sense.

I read the Canadian version for a class I took at BCIT "Principles of Business Management". It was pretty interesting for a text book containing lots of examples from Canadian Businesses.
For its target audience, it's a pretty good book. It's primarily aimed at providing an overview of management principles and related topics. It's an attractive book with lots of diagrams (with some of them being overly complex) and what are good explanations and details about the topics addressed. It should be noted that this book focuses on the techniques and processes, rather than actual practice or the ethics of said practices. It also could use a bit more proofreading as there are bad typos ...more

I was hoping this would provide guidance in management techniques, but it was more of an overview of general managment pronciples. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised since it was the textbook for my Principles of Management class, but most of the info provided seemed to me to be common sense. Not necesarily a bad book, but not exactly useful either.

Obviously I was required to read this book, it served it's purpose, my favorite chapter was "Introduction to Controlling." Very helpful, very helpful indeed! The flowcharts are outstanding in instructing the proper behavior to obtain control over people, I might have one tattooed on my arm in case I forget.
