Management is an organized body of knowledge. "This book," in Peter Drucker'swords, "tries to equip the manager with the understanding, the thinking, the knowledge and the skills for today'sand also tomorrow's jobs." This management classic has been developed and tested during more than thirty years of teaching management in universities, in executive programs and seminars and through the author's close work with managers as a consultant for large and small businesses, government agencies, hospitals and schools. Drucker discusses the tools and techniques of successful management practice that have been proven effective, and he makes them meaningful and easily accessible.

User Review  - Scarchin - LibraryThing

One of the most valuable books I have ever read. My only regret - I am 48 - I wish I had read it 20 years ago. Still - I can still use this as I map out the rest of my professional life and mentor others. Read full review

A very early Phyllis Whitney story(1957). Well-told historical romance taking place in 1880 in New Orleans and centering around Creole families of the time. The love story was engrossing and the twists and turns of the plot made it worth reading. Read full review
