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
its my first management book i read , i like it and it was my gate to read much about this great science
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.
This was really helpful to read as a new supervisor!
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.
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.
Très intéressant,

plein de bons conseils et d'exemples concrets.

Très pédagogique

mais je crois que vais rester assez nulle...
