This review is from: Becoming a Manager: How New Managers Master the Challenges of Leadership (Paperback)
A guide to the challenges facing new managers, and a good reference source for anyone who wants to understand the transition from team player to manager. Hill's book is full of interesting a useful insights. The main drawback is it is a classic academic's book. I don't mean it is overly intellectual - it is not, it is clear and generally well written. But it has lots of observations about new managers - but few recommendations. Most managers reading a book like this are looking for advice, and not observations on how managers behave. Still, it does not take a rocket scientist to interpret her findings into practical advice and I recommend this to anyone who wants to understand the challenges of the new manager. Ironically, it will probably be more meaningful to someone who has some experience - you will find yourself regularly thinking "oh yes, I was like that on my first management role".
