This book is only about 60 pages (large prints and small format) and it summarizes clearly concepts often found in self-development books.

It encourages us to know our strengths, our modalities (how we perform best) and values. It urges us to take responsibility for our relationships, in terms of how we chose them and nurture them.
In order to identify strengths and gain personal insights, it introduces the feedback analysis tool: "Whenever you make a key decision or take a key action, write down what you expect will happen. Nine or twelve months later, compare the actual results with your expectations."
It helps us frame our personal contribution by answering the following question: "Where and how can I achieve results that will make a difference within the next year and a half ?" The answer must balance several things. First, the results should be hard to achieve but still within reach. Second, the results should be meaningful. Third, the results should be visible."

Finally, the book ends with advice on how to deal with the second half of our life, during retirement.

Managing Oneself is an essay, as opposed to a book; which is not surprising as it started off life as an article in the Harvard Business Review (HBR).

This series by HBR is of only important and seminal articles, and this one is no exception. It brings important themes in an easily accessible prose and is well worth a read. Managing the second half of your life is an especially interesting section!

That said, if you have access to an academic library, you'll be able to look it up in the physical or on-line archives of HBR and maybe save yourself a few pounds in the process.

OK this is not one of Druckers longer books.

OK it may only be 3500 words.

And if you buy a book and can only place a value on the number of words per £ then you might not like it.

If you want to read the words.

Reflect on them.

Let them speak to you.

And where your career is now, right now.

If it inspires you as it did me.

Then you will be as delighted with this book as I am.
