Customer Review

on 14 November 2009
If you've also read How to Manage: The Art of Making Things Happen, I'd recommend avoiding this book. It is practical, down-to-earth, pragmatic and clear. It is apparently based on research into 70 businesses. But the clue is in the subtitle: "What You Actually Need to Do to Manage, Lead and Succeed". This book is about managing, just as its sister is.

There are subtle differences only. It's true that it is possible to "lead" when you're not even a manager, but it's also true that many managers in businesses nowadays are expected to make things happen with little real power, so what's the difference? Not too much as it turns out.

I'd say own one or the other. they're both good, but for me, just not different enough.
