I agree with the reviewer who said he couldn't believe all this advice for such little money!

If you are, as I am, a new manager, this book will be invaluable to you!

It is chock full of do's, don'ts, and guides for everything you could think of.

Get this book. It is 1,331 pages of excellence!

Companies should present new managers with a copy of this book upon hiring or promotion. So much useful material here from giving feedback to employees to reading financial statements. Mine is dog-eared already.

Format: Paperback
A reviewer indicated that this book is only suitable for people who have never been managers or never took college courses. As a Learning and Development professional with 30+ years of actual management experience, I have literally hundreds of books in my library relating to the topics included in this book. Most of my customers are college-degreed and in management roles for a good number of years, and they still find this book the most useful when they seek practical advice.

I bought this book shortly after it's publication, and to this day I believe this is one of the best written and no-nonsense reference book for any level of management. It is a real bargain when you consider how much the "flavor of the month" management book goes for these days. Moreover, when you look at most of those publications, what you get is a restatement of the obvious and little, if any roll-up-your-sleeves guidance on what to do on your own to make it happen; the book is often just the hook for the training event or the consulting engagement.

In contrast to the others, the contributors of Every Manager's Desk Reference do not stop at giving you background on each topic, they actually list specific questions to help you assess and think through a particular situation, provide you with direct action steps you can take and the reasons why you should, and tips on how you can make things happen. It is written in an easy to read, conversational style that does not waste words. I highly recommend it.

I think at the very least any manager would benefit from one chapter, and most likey benefit in some way from them all. It's like one big book made up of small books.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the most influential books I've ever read. I can't believe all the knowledge in this book is given away for such a low price. The ROI investment on this book is priceless. I hardly buy books, but aftering being put into a position where time equals money and deadlines are critical, this book is helping me manage everything from myself to the business I operate. A+. This book should be given to every executive and manager.

A perennial must have book for every manager irrespective of experience level. It certainly does exactly “what it says on the tin” – never leave home without it !
