Drucker is a Legend.

This book is a masterful text which will guide you, as an executive of your life or business, to ask and develop answers to questions which will develop your skills and hone your usage of time into sharp relief.

It is a book I will be coming back to regularly to ensure that I'm getting things right and to correct my perspective on them.

Buy the book. You won't regret it. And there are plenty of cheaper options too.

This book is one of those books that is a must for anyone that wants to be more financially savvy. One of the main teachings in this book is that we are moving into a information age where we wont use that much physical hands on stuff and more knowledge. It makes sense and you can already see it happening in the world... physical stuff closing down (shops, buildings ) unemployment etc. The wolrd is changing. It calls for a new type of worker, a "knowledge worker" as Drucker teach us.

The only negative thing i can say is that this book can be a little hard to get into, you can see the person that wrote it has high level of seeing things and didnt write it in a way that everyone would understand clearly and the avarage joe might find it a bit hard reading and understanding

This was a pleasant book to read. Drucker writes well and offers plenty of food for thought. The essence:
1. Effective executives know where their time goes.
2. Effective executives focus on outward contribution
3. They build on strengths
4. They concentrate on the few major areas where superior performance will produce outstanding results
5. They make effective decisions.
This is not a manual on how to be effective but it is a classic and interesting book and a joy to read.

It is not a long book, but if you ever bother thinking about reading a business book, this is the one. It is not current, so some of the references to big industry are very dated, but the concept remains the same - good (excellent) executive performance is excellent executive performance. If this is not mandated reading in a business school - then it is not a business school.

Very helpful tips and although I'm not into self help books, this one was worth reading.

Unfortunately, this book - which may be great - was spoiled for me by the actions of the previous owner, who took a bright pink felt pen and drew lines through many passages. I found this very annoying, so was unable to concentrate properly on the content.

The star rating I have given is based on the views of very many people who have recommended it over the years, and the fact that I did feel that it contained many worthwhile insights.
