He is also an adjunct lecturer in The Catholic University of America's School of Library and Information Science, in Washington, D.C. He has studied Drucker's work for more than 20 years.

More About the Author

Bruce's new book is Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way (McGraw-Hill, 2013). Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker's Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life was published by Berrett-Koehler in 2009. You can learn more about him at www.brucerosenstein.com, and on his blog, Living in More Than One World, http://brucerosenstein.com/blog/

He was named Managing Editor of Leader to Leader in 2011. He worked for USA TODAY, in McLean, Virginia, for 21 years, until December, 2008. He was the "embedded Librarian" in the News section, and regularly wrote about business and management books for the newspaper's Money section.

He wrote about and interviewed Peter Drucker extensively for USA TODAY, and wrote a series of columns about him in 2001-2002 for Information Outlook, the publication of the Special Libraries Association. He has studied Drucker's work for more than 25 years.

Besides USA TODAY and Information Outlook, Bruce has written for such publications as Leader to Leader, Leadership Excellence, American Executive, GAMA International, ONLINE and Library Journal.

Before becoming a librarian, he scripted and selected the recordings for a weekly rock music radio program heard around the world on The Voice of America, from 1974-1988. During that time period, he wrote about rock music for a number of publications, including Trouser Press, Unicorn Times, ARSC Journal and several others. In 1980, he and Steve Leeds formed an independent rock music label, Ambition Records, and released one of the first compilations of independent rock, Declaration of Independents.

Bruce has a BA in Communications from The American University, in Washington, D.C., and a MSLS from The Catholic University of America.

Format: Hardcover
In the Foreword, Frances Hesselbein suggests the key to understanding how to understand Peter Drucker's approach to life, indeed to understanding how any of us can improve the quality of life, is to recognize the importance of diversifying the nature and extent of daily existence, to sharpen a sense of curiosity while remaining open to new ideas, and to learn as much as possible from as many different sources as possible. As Drucker's own life suggests, she observes, "It is to be introspective when needed, but to remember that the most important things happen in the outside world." There is an implicit obligation to share time, talents, and expertise with others, "to leave something of value behind to others." She notes that in this book, Bruce Rosenstein provides many suggestions and strategies to achieve that worthy objective but also reminds us that we must be fully and continuously "aware of pitfalls in our diversification, including finding the time to do everything we want to do. Answers will emerge, but not because we have taken shortcuts." This book is an endorsement of reflection but also a call to action, and that can also be said of every book that Drucker wrote.

According to Rosenstein, "The organizing theme of this book is creating and living a `total life' that includes your work, friends, family, professional colleagues, and affiliation groups. In this way, you can consider all of the elements of your life together and think of how each affects the others, now and in the future." This indicates to me that Rosenstein sees his role as being that of a travel agent to help each reader plan the itinerary and then, once the reader has embarked upon a journey of personal discovery, serve as her or his guide.

Format: Hardcover
In "Living in more than one world," author Bruce Rosenstein has summarized the essence of Peter Drucker's wisdom as it relates to individuals and knowledge workers in particular. Drucker had extraordinary insights about topics such as developing parallel and second careers, understanding one's core competencies and values, continuous learning, etc. Anyone will benefit by taking time to read, reflect and discuss the ideas in this book. Rosenstein has made this easy to do by presenting Drucker's ideas in a manner and format that is extremely approachable and pragmatic. The chapters are easy to read, there are summaries and questions for self reflection.

Individuals who are not big readers and have little time or energy to read Drucker's books will enjoy and benefit from reading this book. Others like myself who have read a considerable amount of Drucker's work will also benefit from revisiting the essence of Drucker and, I suspect, most will discover a few nuggets of wisdom they had not run across before. I did.

I have benefitted from reading "Living in more than one world." After reflecting on what I learned, I may eliminate some of my current activities that have not been working well and try new ones that are more in line with my core competencies. Anytime a book has such a life changing and practical effect on me, I inevitably end up recommending it to others.

Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This new book by Bruce Rosenstein (who was on staff at USA Today for over 20 years) is a perfect introduction to the life, work, and philosophy of Peter Drucker. Drucker was a teacher, consultant, and management expert, but his visionary ideas are applicable to nearly any creative pursuit. Rosenstein has done a great job of encapsulating the teachings of the remarkable Drucker, and he has done so in a lively, very readable style that you will find immediately accessible. [Full disclosure: I have known Bruce for over 30 years, but I aver that my association with him does not in any way lessen or prejudice my enthusiasm for this book.]

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for anyone who's serious about developing personally and professionally and building a satisfying, multifaceted life and career. The book distills Drucker's wisdom on personal growth and self management and gives a game plan for enriching and transforming your life. Rosenstein guides you through creating and building a "total life list" of contacts, interests, goals, affiliations and activities to use as aids in self discovery and self development. There are chapters on developing your core competencies, creating your future, exercising your generosity and other key topics. Sidebars on Drucker's life and work, recaps of main points, "ask yourself" questions and suggested activities for building your total life list add to the book's usefulness and appeal. Rosenstein's style is straightforward and direct and his firsthand knowledge of the subject shows. The writing is compelling and insightful and gives much food for thought. I highly recommend this book.

NOTHING profound here! If you are used to reading Drucker, then this will be a disappointing read, it is all about having more than just a career; working non profit etc. Most of us do this as a part of our lives, maybe some people need to be encouraged, but I fount it a waste of time and money.
