it was amazing

There is so much wisdom in this book. I've railed against "blog posts as books" recently (see my $100 Startup review), and while the main points of this book could easily be summarised in half a dozen or so dot points for a blog post, the real value is in the way these areas are examined, the illustrative stories, and the advice.

Also note: Drucker makes the point that anyone who makes consequential decisions is an executive, no matter where he or she sits in the hierarchy, but in the meat of the text it is clearly aimed at more senior executives. I don't think it takes much imagination to see how to translate the ideas for someone like a programmer making serious decisions when building a wide reaching platform.
