Great book and great information

I enjoyed reading this and was using it for a class. Recommended for anyone going into management to get a general idea of what can be incorporated in management.

Interesting, concise book

As interesting as management books can get, this book proves to be one of the more engaging. The chapters are succinct yet detailed, leaving me with lasting knowledge even after a brief read. I find that sludging through a long, wordy book for hours will leave me with less than a quick read of this book. Now for the physical book, I find it fairly sturdy and I assume it will continue to be durable (I've had it for over a month with minimal wear) and the texture of the cover is rubber-like, adding an enjoyable touch of quality.

I would definitely recommend it

Being a student in management studies, i came across this book for management principles. What to say! I very much now aware about the techniques which i might have skipped while college. Not just in studies, it really have helped to develop my schedule about everyday life. Like how to manage time, cope up qith difficulties and much more.
I honestly would recommend anyone to read this one a simple language, it is so understandable.
