I don't think what via how to books like this one poeple can learn a leadership skill. It's better to read classic books. Something like a adventure.

But it's good to know a rational references points what this book gives to us.
If you find yourself officially managing people for the first time and want to know whether you're doing well, or a piss poor job, this is a good book to pick up. Although nothing in here is rocket surgery, it acts as a nice gut check and points you in the right direction. A quick read and a good place to start.

Recommends it for: managers
This is a fantastic book! Simply the best book I have ever read on the subject of management. No academic bullshit. No sucking up to massively egotistical CEOs. Just broad and deep experience, processed with great intelligence, and shared with the rest of us. Bravo to David Baker. He is a peach!
Dawn Lennon
A guide for first-time managers that tells it like it is. Practical, based in extensive observation and experience. Straight-forward and an easy read.
