it was ok

For a business book, it's very readable. Mr. Abrashoff seems like a pretty genuine guy, and the lessons he passes on are very applicable in the workplace.

Unfortunately, they're also fairly obvious. Maybe it's just because of my perspecitve on things, but his rules of actually treating his employees like people seems like the kind of no-duh lesson that every manager should already know. So for all of you soulless, evil managers out there: read this book. Everyone else: just follow your intuition and be a decent person, thereby saving yourself the time that would be spent on this book.

Peter The point is that all managers SHOULD know and follow them. Plenty do not. You made a sweeping assumption.
