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.
Bob Selden, author What To Do When You Become The Boss: How New Managers Become Successful Managers
Sadly there are very few references to studies or other useful materials which help to add "legitimacy" but regardless what is said is consistent with alot of various industry specific standard guides to management.
The main problem is that the book seems more like a quick summary/reference book, rather than a "handbook guide". Again, this relates to there being little mention of other sources to explain in much depth the reasons why certain behaviours and methods of a good manager work.
Having said that what is included is helpful, nevertheless, and is presented in a logical, simple and easy to follow way.
For an introduction to management or for very general use, this is a great summary to have and use. The use for practicing managers, of any industry, looking for perhaps specfic techniques, or just more details, it probably won't help much.
