Management is tasks. Management is a discipline. Peter Drucker's classic text also reminds us that management is also people. Every achievement of management is the achievement of a manager. Every failure is a failure of a manager. People manage rather than "forces" or "facts." The vision, dedication, and integrity of managers determine whether there is management or mismanagement.

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
