This compact edition of the authors' 1981 bestseller is an example of how great ideas can be made accessible in audio format. Going beyond the premise of managing in one-minute chunks, the broader lessons are the values that get expressed in those minutes--such as respecting people, providing emotional security for them, setting reasonable but challenging goals, and expecting them to develop excellent work habits. There's also the value of being concise in all communication, which confining one's input to one-minute chunks certainly facilitates. The lessons are both simple and profound, and are crafted and expressed with as much elegance as any management advice I've heard in the years since they first appeared.
