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. The Practice of Management created the discipline of modern management practices. Readable, fundamental, and basic, it remains an essential book for students, aspiring managers, and seasoned professionals.

This book is five stars. Great insight into the "practice" of management, as opposed to theory. I highly recommend to all of Drucker's books. Read full review
