This review is from: 50 Management Ideas You Really Need to Know (50 Ideas You Really Need to Know series) (Hardcover)
This is a nicely presented book, very easy to read and a good price too. A lot of ideas are covered so obviously it's going to be brief, but for a beginner it's fine. As a software manager I often find complexity and people are of daily importance. Illness, stress, overwork and things like that are key to management (of any industry). Remember the old sayings "it's not rocket science" and "there's more than one way to skin a cat". These came from somewhere. In software as well as other industries, complexity brings many problems whereas working around or designing a simpler solution are usually the best way forward. I feel rather than delving into a lot of slightly peripheral ideas, these more common principals should have been covered. Overall, a good read and recommended for beginners interested in what all the terms mean.
