By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 17, 2009
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.

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.

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.]

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.

Bruce Rosenstein has done a superb job in Living in More Than One World of laying out pearls of wisdom from Peter Drucker's philosophy of self-management and self-transformation. I read the book in one sitting and afterward grabbed a notebook and jotted down my own slate of activities and priorities, challenges to time management, pivotal moments, core competencies, and other bits of information. These are needed to see one's own life within the compelling framework Drucker--as distilled by Rosenstein--offers for a more reflective, yet more social, and more generous, full, satisfying and fulfilling life. There are hints at the role spirituality might play in this journey, but that is not the emphasis of the book. Broadening one's life experience, volunteerism, giving back, and managing one's time and talents are themes writ large in the book. I found one of the most exciting and insightful exercises Rosenstein encouraged was to look back and find what moments in my life were pivotal experiences.

This is certainly a stimulating book and will be especially helpful for those looking to make a fundamental shift in their life, such as a change in social interactions, work environment, type of work or life goals in general. I highly recommend it.
