1. A Simple contrived narrative with a pedantic plod.
2. An aim at communicating common sense wisdom for the business world.
3. A healthy overlay of positive thinking.
4. characters you could care less about because they are one dimensional, mindless automatons sent by the author to fulfill his didactic purposes but do not breath, bleed, or have any life of their own.
5. Lots of slogans that would look nic ...more
That being said, I think this is probably a really solid management style. I just wish they showed a little more respect for the reader. The dialog attribution alone is nausea-inducing.
This is from the same school of thought as Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends & Influence People. Which is, basically, if you manipulate people into thinking you care about them, they'll do what you want. Of course, it's ...more

David Brent could have written this book. It's so cheesey and american it's unreal. Basically it has three ideas. One minute target setting - all goals mapped out in less than 250 words with each team member getting fourteen or fifteen or twenty odd or something targets. There's also one minute praise. It advises you to 'touch people in a reassuring way' during ...more
You'd think there'd be a secret sauce to it, some way to conduct yourself or boss people around in an effective way. Turns out, the three steps of managing (goal setting, praising and reprimanding) are not only a '"minute" each, but couldn't be more jaw-dropping obvious and right.
Be precise about what you want to get done and the quality it has to be done by, but give autonomy in how it's done. This gives space ...more
أوافق الأخ محمد آل قرعاني في "مدونة كتب" حين تمنى أن يتحول هذا الكتاب إلى عمل سينمائي؛ حتى تصل أفكاره لشريحة أوسع.
On the front cover it states that this is the World's Most Popular Management Method. I don't believe that is a fact. It also says More Success With Less Stress. As an old stress "victim" I take statements like that very serious however it is hardly mentioned in the book how this is achieved. Th ...more
The main idea behind the book is that to manage people quickly and effectively, there are 3 important steps: 1) Goal Setting, in which an agreement is reached on the person's responsibilities and then these responsibilities are broken down and ...more
It's mostly true and there's some basic elemental truth in this title. People are people, and regardless of the time period or work environment, they still operate in the same ways and respond to the same incentives.
However, the writing is absolutely wretched. I couldn't wait to finish reading the book and plowed through the last few chapters by sheer force of will. On the positive side, the book is merciful ...more

OK. I totally get why this book would have been so dog-gone popular... THIRTY-TWO YEARS AGO!
It's a cute story - this up-and-coming yuppie-type interviews a successful business manager to find out his secrets for success. Then he is sent to interview three of this manager's subordinates, who each give him one of the three secrets to being a One Minute Manager. (I kept thinking of Dickens' Christmas ghosts! LOL!)
It's all boiled down to three simple rules: Set Goals, Give Imme ...more
This book gets two stars because it has one or two good concepts in it. However, it seems to be haunted by an all American ghost of generation past. Te wistful longing for american cars, the rebuilding of asia...
The writing is pretty bad and I had to force myself to finish it. The only reason I made it to the end was that its a relatively short book.
I agree with the main concepts, take one minute to praise an employee as soon as they do something worthy, and take one minute to reprimand if som ...more
90 minutes went by and I was still there. I ended up reading the entire book and even pulling out my notebook and taking notes while doing so.
A short, entertaining, read but definitely full of golden nuggets of value.
The 3 secrets left me smiling at the end of every chapter because these simple yet effective tools can improve ones life not only in the workplace but in ...more

The book focuses on three practices of a 'One Minutes Manager: Goal Setting, Praisings, and Reprimands.
I liked the one minutes goal setting which describes how the manager ensured both him and his employees were on the same page. In the goal setting phase both parties draft expectations in regards to a new project, and before proceeding make sure that they are heading toward ...more
