این کتاب اولین کتابی است که در مورد مدیریت خوانده ام. و از نظر من با تمام کاستی های ممکن اش،تعاریف اساسی و پایه ای مدیریت را به شیوه ای جالب و مفید پوشش داده بود و خواندنش سرگرم کننده و آموزنده بود.

As far as I can tell, lots of advice, but fails to give any insight as to why we should believe some of the practices described in the book works.

Here's some sugestions for the book:
- Including some references to studies that prove the point
- Include some references to well known real life scenarios of managers succeding or failing at applying those points

The constant jokes are not funny and derail you even further from believing the accuracy of the statements (no references to back it up + c

It explains everything about managing fluently. You can see the cheat sheet of it there.
I learned new skills that I've never heard. I advice you experience at least once.
Très intéressant,

plein de bons conseils et d'exemples concrets.

Très pédagogique

mais je crois que vais rester assez nulle...

Nelson and Economy are both funny and helpful. Highly recommended.

This book covers the basics of management. It avoids the many fads that disappear after a brief period of popularity. There is a lot of repetition, but it's a good first book on the subject.

This is actually a very good book on management. You will b surprised to know how many managers I've worked with that don't know the first thing about managing people

یک کتاب خیلی خوب ، ساد و موثر دیگه از این سری "به زبان آدمیزاد" که عنوانهای جالب و به درد بخوری توشون دیده میشه.
به عنوان یک مدیر یا حتی یک کارمندی که میخواد در محل کارش روابط و کارآمدی بهتری داشته باشه، خوندن این کتاب خیلی میتونه مفید باشه. هیچ نکته یا تئوری پیچیده و مبهمی در این کتاب مطرح نمیشه. مجموعه ای از اصول و قوانین مدیریت و کار در دنیای مدرن براتون بیان میشه که در همه مشاغل صادق و جاری هست. حالا میخواید کارگر پتروشیمی باشید یا مدیر خلاقیت در یک مزون لباس
مدتی بود که این کتاب رو گرفته بود

I think all the "for dummies" books are pretty good
great overview of all sorts of management quandries, and some of the newer theories of how to make work a better place for everyone and get the best work from less than enthused employees.
