    1. This is the magnum opus of one of the greatest business minds of the 20th century, filtered and updated by one of his students five years after his death.It took me a year and a half to make it through this book. Each chapter was so dense with thought-provoking concepts that I couldn't read more than about one a week. The book's preface recommends reading each chapter as a standalone essay, which I agree with.The core hypothesis here is both simple and grand. Organizations (meaning for-profit co [...]

    2. No manager worth her weight should be allowed to manage people, projects or businesses without a fundamental understanding of the teachings of Peter Drucker, The Man Who Invented Management. Management Rev Ed captures a lifetime of Drucker's principles in one legacy guide book on the practice of management.The original text was published in 1973. This revised edition integrates Drucker's findings from then until his passing in 2005 at age 95. At more than 500 pages it is comprehensive, yet easy [...]

    3. Without hesitation, I called Kotler's "Marketing Management" as the Bible of marketing, and using the same perspective, I will name this terrific book "The Bible of Management". There is not lecturer can teach management without using one of Drucker's publications, especially this book. I made a good use of the content of this book to quote some definitions about the social implementation of management literature, such like entrepreneurship.I have read the kindle version and it was well designed [...]

    4. Great book, though a bit long. I took many, many notes, which shows I learned a lot from it. But the writing style was a bit dry.

    5. Drucker has been a recent discovery for me. The clarity he brings to the role of manager at any level is refreshing. Though I would recommend the Essential Drucker as an intro.

    6. I read this about 18 years ago, from my dad's library. I saw the revised edition at the bookstore today. Yes, it's the classic tome. I believe it has influenced me in subtle ways. Worth a re-read.

    7. So much information I haven't found elsewhere. A must re-read, although there's a lot at the beginning (and some scattered throughout) that is more philosophical and less actionable. Also too long to properly summarize.The theory of the business has 3 parts: 1) Assumptions about the environment of the organization (society and its structure, the market, the customer, and technology). These define what the organization expects it can be paid for.2) Assumptions about the specific mission of the or [...]

    8. The best book ever read on Corporate Organization and Management. The book that make you feel more intelligent and allow you to show wisdom. But the human and/or interpersonnal skills should be taken somewhere else. Personally, a mix of Covey (7 habits) and Carnegie (How to) may fulfill the blanks of the absolute necessity to deal with People and boost your executive career and capabilities.

    9. A classic management book - The Bible.I've read quite some management books and took variety of online and live training. All management concepts and guiding principles are in this book. It is practical and simple. If you choose to read one book and only one book on management subject, this is THE one.

    10. Simply must read for all managers and who wants to become one. Not too easy, not too complicated. A very well balanced book. I should have read it at least five years ago.

    11. This book is a mixed bag for me. It did help me realize how management has changed in the age of information and knowledge workers and get a better understanding of how one is supposed to work alongside his team rather than try to keep a handle on all things himself. That said, a lot of this book felt like that last shot of a movie that has a sequel, panning above an an undiscovered mystery that you want to delve into but nope, you'll have to look for it elsewhere. I'll admit that it has been a [...]

    12. I listened to the Audio version of Management as so many people have listed this as THE BOOK on management. I had read this for my business undergrad, but by not being in the workforce, it didn't mean much.So much of my reading focus has been on leadership and leading people. This book reminds us that there is so much more to all businesses than simply Leading. Processes, Focus, Vision, etc need to be managed.Many reviews can get into the meat and potatoes of what Management is about. I would pr [...]

    13. Note to self: How to nourish the brain - The human brain absorbs almost half of all the oxygen and all the energy in the body. The five sense organs work directly for the brain and supply it with stimuli. To Nourish the brain is to supply it with stimulus and energy.

    14. This book looks like it's going to make a nice doorstop. It's thick as someone's arm and written about a subject that most people-- including managers-- could seem to give a damn about. Management. What methods have been used, what is effective, and what is the social responsibility of a corporate entity?Let's deal with that last one for a moment. Because this is the singular problem with this book. Drucker somehow makes the subject interesting, it is well researched, and there are many keen obs [...]

    15. WOW I can see why they say that this book is used in some colleges as class text books. It is written in that style, and while the subject matter is not exactly the stuff of legends, it is a fairly easy and (if you are interested in the topic of management in general) interesting read.The book is laid out in a fairly straight forward fashion, with plenty of cross references to other chapters for follow up or review.The examples listed are, for the most part, easy to understand. They are also ge [...]

    16. There aren't many 800 page books where I feel an urge to immediately start reading again from the beginning. As a book written in the early 70's there's obviously much that is dated (the only pronoun for managers and leader Drucker uses is 'he', Soviet Russia is alive and well, 'are multinationals here to stay?!' etc.). However, I was more struck by how much of what Drucker wrote about seems applicable and prescient today (importance of self-development/continuous learning for knowledge workers, [...]

    17. Oh wow. Simply the most thorough, genius book on management I've ever read. This is like taking an entire course in the history of management from where it began to where we are today - and is a fabulous download on Drucker's beliefs. Let me say - this is for serious managers who truly see management as a calling and want to understand it at a deep level. Sometimes it could be a bit dry, and it is less of a 'do this, do that' book and more of a thorough study into the theory of management. I con [...]

    18. Drucker attempts to give detailed information on many different areas of management. The book contains loads of information. Drucker provides his readers a detailed history of the field of management.The reader also learns a good deal about different management structures and styles, and the need for companies to structure their organizations to allow for growth. This book was a long read for me, primarily because this type of book is recreational reading for me and I have been busy of late. The [...]

    19. " an increasing number of people who are full-time employees have to be managed as if they were volunteers What motivates -- and especially what motivates knowledge workers -- is what motivates volunteers. Volunteers, we know, have to get more satisfaction from their work than paid employees, precisely because they do not get a paycheck. They need, above all, challenge. They need to know the organization's mission and to believe in it. They need continuous training. They need to see results."

    20. Big idea:#1 Great Managers are also great leaders and this book provides a comprehensive compendium on how to do great management AND leadership.#2 Knowledge workers are also managers to some degree. #3 The knowledge economy makes knowledge workers an asset rather than a cost to the organization. Knowledge workers production capacity is contained between their ears. Their production is portable.

    21. Long and slightly dry at times, but unparalleled in insight, depth and breadth.The late Peter F. Drucker is a must-read author for any studious manager, and this specific title is one of his most recent (updated by a colleague and published in 2008) and broadest in scope.Note: While the audio book is reportedly abridged, it is about 20 hours in length, so the abridgment should be very minimal.

    22. While the original Management (1974) by Drucker is still a classic, this revised edition by Joseph A. Maciariello distills the monumental wisdom of Drucker (including his prolific output after 1974 - the year in which the original classic was written) into one readable book. Highly recommended - you can start with the summary from GetAbstract to get a hang of it.

    23. This book is a classic in the field and should be read by anybody interested in management. Though old, it still contains information and ideas that are as current as this morning.Any student of management has to come to grips with what Drucker has to say in this book.A must read.J. Robert Ewbank, author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

    24. The book is lengthy, but the point of view brought by Peter Drucker is still contemporary. Although I don't entirely agree with some of his positions, for instance about motivation, he was writing during a period when the ideas we now have for granted about extrinsic and intrinsic motivation were starting to be emerging. Undoubtedly he was a management thinker ahead of his time, worth reading.

    25. This book is brilliant. I would recommend this book to anybody who is a manager or has desire to be one. The material is a little dated now, but still completely relavant and easy to apply to business today.

    26. One of the most valuable books I have ever read. My only regret - I am 48 - I wish I had read it 20 years ago.Still - I can still use this as I map out the rest of my professional life and mentor others.

    27. Excellent masterpiece from one of the management masters, Joseph. A. Maciariello has been able to take from the best of Drucker's many writings and combine them into a work that is relevant to the 21st century.

    28. Este ca un manual de management, bazat pe istoria dezvoltarii business-urilor si a practicilor de management. Prima parte pare mai plictisitoare, fiind mai mult despre istorie decat despre practici, urmand ca in a doua parte sa fie multe idei de aplicat.

    29. Drucker at his best. Everything you need to know about managing others and yourself. The narrator could be a bit tedious at times but after 18 hours I am pretty sure I would grate on his nerves too.

    30. This is so broad and yet it doesn't feel shallow. Each chapter covers a topic well (most topics are material for books on their own) without being overwhelming, or being superficial. It is a nice genera coverage.
