Format: Hardcover
"We do not know yet precisely how to link the liberal arts and management. We do not know yet what impact this linkage will have on either party---and marriages, even bad ones, always change both partners." Peter Drucker, "Teaching the Work of Management."

"For Drucker, the principal goal of management, then, is to protect individual freedom and opportunity." Joseph Maciariello and Karen Linkletter

Those two quotes capture the tone for a book dedicated to the enlightened vision and prolific writings of one man: Austrian-born, Peter Drucker. The co-authors are serious and passionate students of the Drucker style of management. This book examines his fundamental perspective of employee management as a liberal art. Professor Maciariello and Dr. Linkletter provide ample evidence to support his thesis and introduce the breadth of Mr. Drucker's voluminous work to the reader. They also delve deeply into Drucker the man to show how and by whom his extraordinary life was shaped.

Organized Format, Painstaking Research and Highly Readable

There are eight chapters, a lengthy introduction (21 pages) along with precise and very detailed notes, sources and index sections. This book is a long work at almost 400 pages. Given that the co-authors are respected academics and historians, I anticipated a somewhat tedious read. I was in for a pleasant surprise. The co-authors writing style was informative and engaging to complement the educational element to maintain the reader's interest. The book is clinical in its presentation and is almost a dissertation on Mr. Drucker himself.

My only complaints: A few chapters were over 50 pages in length and provided too much information (at least for me) to digest at once.

Format: Hardcover
The authors, both long-time followers of Peter Drucker, have written a book that does Drucker's work justice. The care and scholarship that went into this work are evident from the introduction on, and the vision the author's present is, as they say, timeless. While I don't agree with all of Drucker's conclusions, one has to admire how he sought to elevate management to a liberal art.

Chapter One starts off with a great quote from Drucker that explains the book's purpose:

"Management is thus what tradition used to call a liberal art-"liberal" because it deals with the fundamentals of knowledge, self-knowledge, wisdom, and leadership; "art" because it is practice and application. Managers draw on all the knowledges and insights of the humanities and the social sciences-on psychology and philosophy, on economics and history, on the physical sciences and ethics. But they have to focus this knowledge on effectiveness and results-on healing a sick patient, teaching a student, building a bridge, designing and selling a "user-friendly" software program"

According to Drucker, management goes way beyond the business world. Everyone practices management skills daily, and Drucker tried to elevate the moral, spiritual, and philosophical elements of management in every day life. His work is heavily influenced by his Christian background and his worldview is reflected in all of his works.

One of the most helpful part of this book was the discussion on leadership. "Effective leadership is assuming responsibility for getting the right things done" (246). This is the best chapter in the book and has some great advice for leaders.

This is a heavily researched, well-organized, well written work.

Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:30 Mins
It is apparent that many contemporary and popular management concepts have been derived from the works of Peter Drucker. Having read numerous management and executive leadership books, almost all have some taint of Drucker's original concepts and philosophy, even though it may not be directly credited.

While the book is overly verbose and unnecessarily academic in parts, there is a true wealth of information and alternate thinking throughout.

The principles of opportunity and observance of social ecologies is priceless and will help any senior executive or business owner to quickly "value" their current perceptions and definitive actions in order to determine if they are truly "effective".

This was my first direct Drucker engagement but this book has left me wanting more and I have already started to seek out many of the extremely valuable Drucker management and effective business management insights.

I thoroughly recommend Drucker's Lost Art of Management to all those in aspiring business owners, senior executives and current business leaders for an enlightening and highly informative reflection upon what is truly important in business.
