The Principles of Scientific Management by Frederick Winslow Taylor

This is a classic book which launched new practises in human resource management. Like many other tools, the principles outlined in the book can be used productively or unproductively. The lessons and the tools are there; how they are used depends on the maturity and ethics of the manager.

I read the book for its insight into management practices but there was little of that. It also assumes a certain degree of football knowledge and the people in the sport. For football enthusiasts, however, it is a must read whether or not you are a Manchester United supporter.

Kotler is my favourite author in the Marketing field and I have read very many of his books, but this book disappointed me because it attempts to cover a lot of ground and merely skims over many an important concept. For a marketing practitioner or student, these concepts are already well known and understood, and the book is unlikely to contribute any more awareness; for the novice there is insufficient dept to grasp the key theories. Buy Kotler's A to Z of Marketing instead!
