Drucker: The Landmarks of His Ideas, 11 Mar. 2013
This little gem of a book takes the reader on a journey through some of the major events of the 20th Century by the hand of one of the leading thinkers in the field of management, Peter Drucker. We encounter Drucker in dialogue with political figures, academics and business practitioners. The author shows how these dialogues are transformed, through Drucker's pen, into valuable and often ground-breaking contributions to humanistic and management thought. However the book is more than an intellectual travelogue. The book offers a systematic explanation of the key ideas of Drucker, at times plunging the reader into some of Drucker's highly-readable original texts. The style of the book is clear and lively so that it can be enjoyed by anyone interested in the life and work of Peter Drucker and the history of management.
