As a devotee of Winnie-the-Pooh, philosopher extraordinaire, I had to pick this one up. I expected the Pooh parts to be “Pooh-like” and that turned out to be the case. The author does a great job at writing Pooh (and Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyor, etc.) in their AA Milne voices and includes a fair amount of flashbacks right from the original stories to illustrate his management points. But I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this book has some honestly good management advice.

The advice is of

I was intrigued by the idea of learning some management techniques from the almighty Winnie-the-Pooh himself! A fun quick read. The book is split into several managerial lessons that are then explained via allegorical stories of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends.

Not too many jaw dropping concepts, but does present the material in a very digestible fashion.

Feel-good sort of management book that is optimistic towards managerial techniques and leans towards Drucker's Modern Management and Fiedler's Con

Of course for more intense and serious folk, this book might not earn a 5-star ranking. However, for those of us who have always learned from Pooh and his adventures at the 100 Acre Wood — it is a must-read, must-own!

The author presents simple "lessons" regarding management, business purpose and managerial skills in a dialogue with Pooh and friends in the context of classic 100 Acre Wood stories and attitudes. Quick read for adults and an excellent life-skills book for children.

I love Winnie the Pooh and this was bought for me as a joke. I was hoping I'd like it and learn more about it, but these characters don't lend themselves to such a serious topic.
Maybe it it had been written differently it might have been a success.
As it stands, I wouldn't recommend this book for either management, or a Winnie the Pooh fan.

When it comes to books on management, this is one of the least terrible.

A couple of my colleagues gave it to me, not realizing that I would spend the whole 200 pages wondering which of them would be Tigger, Piglet or one of the other animals in the world of A.A. Milne. :-)

The world would be a warmer place of Winnie the Pooh came up with the jargony business buzz words, instead of whoever made all those ones I seem to really hate

Leuk boekje dat gemakkelijk wegleest, maar toch vooral een inleiding tot management, niet bedoeld voor mensen die hier al iets vanaf weten.

Ik ben niet dol op Poeh, maar dit is een boek wat leuk is. Ik ga zeker opzoek naar de andere boekjes in deze serie.

I met a woman who used this book as the HR Director for a very large corporation and loved it. The book works for me.
