A classic since its publication in 1954, The Practice of Management was the first book to look at management as a whole and being a manager as a separate responsibility.

Readable, fundamental, and basic, it remains an essential book for students, aspiring managers, and seasoned professionals.

Review: The Practice of Management

User Review  - Mike Dorman - Goodreads

A wonderful book. Lots of great insight, but it can be repetitive and scattered. More thorough than "Effective Executive", but also not as concise or clear. I am a clear Drucker fan. Read full review
