Format: Hardcover
This team of authors has effectively catogorized experience as a tool for training managers. They have a very clear understanding that most of what managers learn is done through hard fought pain and effort - rarely the classroom.
Perhaps most useful is the chapter on learning from good, bad or indifferent bosses. The best part about the book is that these authors both understand the academic, social science research behind effective management, and they have blended it with hard ball qualitative interviews with real people in real job situations. Regretably, they don't give enough emphasis on how to manage one's own job experience.
All in all, an excellent tool. I have reread it five times and consult it regularly.

Format: Hardcover
I'm involved in a Leadership Developement program. The Lessons of Experience is part of my required reading list. The book is very good and I'm getting a lot of solid information out of it.
But my reading list is long, which begs the question, WHY is this not available for the Kindle? It would be great to go to my training sessions with all my reading on one device (not to mention and save a few trees). Younger folk coming up are the electronic generation. Make it easy for them to get and read this book.
