Review: Understanding ManagementUser Review - Hannamari - Goodreads
A good basic textbook on management. Includes wide range of fundamental theories on organizations, motivation, leadership and so on and therefore takes ages to read through. An easy book to understand if you just have the patience to go through the whole thing. Read full review
