5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide for managers, 16 Sep 2009
This review is from: The New Manager's Handbook: 24 Lessons for Mastering Your New Role (McGraw-Hill Professional Education Series) (Paperback)
I liked this book. It's succinct, to the point and can be read in just a couple of hours (max). What's more, the messages are spot on!

Each chapter has only three pages (that's unique) and concludes with three tips for implementing the idea or topic. It's well written and covers the majority of things a new manager should consider.

I very much like the starting point of the book "Give Feedback". And Stettner is talking about giving praise, not criticism (giving criticism only comes toward the end of the book). This is a great way for a new manager to set a positive example to the people he or she is going to manage. The second chapter is about "How to make the best of bad news), something that the new manager is most likely to encounter very early in the new role. The book topics flow nicely from there, including some great tips on how to impress your boss.

If you are looking for a short, introductory book on the topic of management, or perhaps as a gift for someone who has just been promoted, this book would be ideal. For the serious student of management, it would go well as a primer to be followed by a more detailed book later.
