4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for study or practice 26 Sep 2010
I brought this book to use for reference in my Open University studies in Leadership and Management and found it to be most insightful.
There is of course a great deal that is purely common sense, but the size of the book and the style of writing have made it perfect to refer to 'in the moment'. There is also a quick tips, cut out and keep, in the back of the book if needed.

Would definitely recommend to any new and aspiring managers or for anyone who just wants to get ahead and understand what's really being said.
