The One Thing You Need to Know: .. About Great Managing, Great Leading and Sustained Individual Success
The One Thing You Need to Know: .. About Great Managing, Great Leading and Sustained Individual Success

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick rules to success, 27 Nov. 2007
An ambitious attempt at boiling down the main rule which can bring success in:

*Managing
*Leading
*Sustained personal success

Marcus Buckingham has used case studies and interviews of the most successful people in each of these areas. He also sets out how you can look to use these rules in your work and life.

Full of interesting examples, you'll be able to see how you can use the techniques to take you to a new level.

This book will be of particular interest to people who lead teams or oversee the work of others, but it is not limited to these situations. Most useful in a business context.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great approach, but not much content, 21 Nov. 2007
Lots of pictures, but not much content. You can get much of the same material in other places with more in-depth analysis. An interesting approach though, which brought a grin to my face at times, but overall it left me feeling not much wiser. Also, be warned. I read this book in an hour (as there's not much content), so it might be better used as a thought provoker or for inspiration rather than as one to read through for the underlying message.
