This book does a great job of starting a chapter with a real world situation, outlining important aspects of management, pointing out major learning aspects, and bringing back the opening story to make connections throughout the chapter.

Normally when you get a management book, it is very wordy and boring. This was very sensible and did a good job of explaining the intent of the lesson.

This book flows easily, and I love the "Remember This" boxes after each of the management concepts. The book isn't boring or dry, but it kept me engaged throughout the chapters. The "Exhibit Boxes" (graphics) are great and they make you want to read them. The Concept Connection boxes are a unique and fun way to remember the vocabulary.

There are boxes that highlight the important information and makes it easy to skim the chapters. The teacher follows the guidelines and that helps when time to take the tests.

I have read many management books in my career and this one is the best for all the areas a manager would expect to need information on. I would recommend for all managers both present and those in school considering a career in management.
