I'd recommend "The Boss's Survival Guide" to just about anyone who spends a large fraction of a lifetime in the workplace. First of all, it can be a reliable handbook for bosses who already are successful - the long odds are they got that way by realizing that "good" can always become "better" and they'll welcome this book for that reason. It's a how-to book with a lot of fresh ideas and mini-case histories that help illuminate the contemporary workplace, providing even experienced bosses reminders of time-proven, but perhaps forgotten, rules for success. For bosses who may be new to their roles, it's a roadmap through a growing thicket of workplace regulations and personnel pitfalls - and also a guide to those sometimes-narrow pathways leading toward personal growth and employee satisfaction. But that's not the end of it: the Survival Guide also is a solid handbook for any employee who might one day become a boss - or who is trying to understand why some bosses are more rewarding to work for than others. In such cases, the book might make a fine gift (perhaps sent anonymously) from that same employee to his or her boss. By the same token, it might be an equally valuable gift from a boss to employees that show promise and who may become bosses. For all of the above (and maybe for spouses of bosses, as well) the book is engaging, fun-to-read, as well as informative and profound. -- mccarthy

When the going gets tough, the tough should reach for the "Boss's Survival Guide"!
No question managing your employees is a lot easier in strong economic times than leading through difficult times. Growth periods don't test your intestinal fortitude the way large (or even small) scale problems do, nor do they determine if your managers will stay on track in the heat of battle. Where should managers turn for guidance? Well my recommendation is this book! Whether you want to understand ways to motivate and keep your employees engaged after a brutal layoff, or how to handle the brutal layoff (and keep the company compliant with the ever changing employment laws), or recognizing and dealing with the internal stress (yours and your employees) of working in an ever changing landscape, then let this book be your source for deeper understanding of these topics and many more. Extremely thorough and insightful, this book should be required reading for all mid level and senior managers operating in today's business world.

One of the easiest and most thorough management books every written. I'm using this book for a basic management class in a major corporation in Houston and the participants love the book, the many examples. and love coming to class to discuss the content and then can easily relate it to their own situations. Bravo to Allan Halcrow; I believe he is the true author!!

I work in the medical field but manage people. This book illustrates important principles by describing them and giving good and bad examples of them in action.
Concise but still comprehensive, I found it an easy but helpful read.
