This most consolidated version of Drucker's collected writings casts a bright light of effectiveness across every type of management: business, non-profit, and government. Drucker's insight is elegant. He observes, sees the pattern and simplifies, repeatedly applying his genius to topics ranging from the purpose of a company, to communication, to effective communication. As further proof of his skills, his points seem timeless, with supporting examples ranging from his personal experiences with Alfred P. Sloan to analysis of the technology boom of the late 1900's.more
It's the best book on management I ever read. I'm writing small resummes on my website because it's impossible to retain in our brain all wisdom that Peter F. Drucker exposes in this book only by reading it.In complement of this book, I think you will need to read "Maslow on Management"more
A great compilation of his great works. Great refresher course, if you have read some of his other works. Mr. Drucker has been the foundation of my business from a Management standpoint. My top 3 books would be: Post Capitalist Society, The Daily Drucker, and this book The Essential Drucker. Drucker just provides great observations. Along with Post Capitalist Society (because of his historical approach and stance on Social Responsibility), this book is a great starter book into Management.more
One of the best all-around business books I have, at least as far as readability and common sense goes. I wish I knew if this was backed by research.more
