This is a thoughtful and funny book that anyone in business can learn from. It is always good to see things from different and new points of view. Jeff Angus proves that baseball provides us useful insights into our everyday management challenges. All of us who have spent sunny afternoons at the park can relate to this approach. Mr. Angus represents these ideas with pace and humor that is rere today in any nonfiction let alone a business book.

MANAGEMENT BY BASEBALL: THE OFFICIAL RULES FOR WINNING MANAGEMENT IN ANY FIELD could also have been featured in our sports section, but it's reviewed here for its applications of baseball principles to management theory. Baseball managers can be better role models for leaders in business than current business models because they have learned how to implement innovations, overcome resistance to new ideas, adapt to changes, and lead team efforts: any new manager and baseball fan will relish these 'how to' guidelines.

I normally hate how-to books and management titles. But this one is a different animal. Mr. Angus's advice is smart, practical, and connected to the game of baseball (which makes it more fun as well as more understandable). If you enjoy baseball, and want to learn a few new moves to help you manage better, I urge you to read this book.
