For its target audience, it's a pretty good book. It's primarily aimed at providing an overview of management principles and related topics. It's an attractive book with lots of diagrams (with some of them being overly complex) and what are good explanations and details about the topics addressed. It should be noted that this book focuses on the techniques and processes, rather than actual practice or the ethics of said practices. It also could use a bit more proofreading as there are bad typos ...more

This is the very first management book that I have read in full, and it was in its middle east edition. I have read it once, but sure will return later to specific chapter or topics. To my mind, it is not peculiar that some experts on the subject consider it a basic book, not only in the academic sense but on the practical side too. It is a well-written book, appealing to read and study. It actually discusses the way of management and all that surrounds it, in corporate business mainly overlooki ...more

Make a plan ...Set a goal toward it ....just simple but hard
A great book for everyone not only for managers

Some words of the book::
-every organization needs a mission.
-To get where you want to be, do something you are afraid to do , get out of your comfort zone.
-Seek first to understand, then to be understood.
-we are creatures of habit..every day when you go school or work, probably go the same way.
-Always treat people how you want to be treated.
-Stress is not always bad.
- Things are ne

I was hoping this would provide guidance in management techniques, but it was more of an overview of general managment pronciples. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised since it was the textbook for my Principles of Management class, but most of the info provided seemed to me to be common sense. Not necesarily a bad book, but not exactly useful either.

Obviously I was required to read this book, it served it's purpose, my favorite chapter was "Introduction to Controlling." Very helpful, very helpful indeed! The flowcharts are outstanding in instructing the proper behavior to obtain control over people, I might have one tattooed on my arm in case I forget.

Ok, let's be honest. I would have never read this had it not been required for school. It's a textbook. It reads slightly better than some textbooks I've read, but it's still a textbook. Has some good insight into management, and some cool case studies.

McGill, AGEC 242 - Management. Worst course ever! is it me or management is a study that translate simple words into difficult and confusing terminology. Nothing is really new, everything is just common sense.

I read the Canadian version for a class I took at BCIT "Principles of Business Management". It was pretty interesting for a text book containing lots of examples from Canadian Businesses.
