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.
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!
