Its a storybook and quite honestly, the real contents of the book could be summarized on a single page.
RichCanadian
This book dissects the act of delegation and sections it into definable and repeatable steps, creating a process.
Diwakar Mokadam
A "business" book that's an easy & enjoyable read while it offers practical advice in a succinct manner.

Format: Hardcover
This slender little book, of fewer than 100 pages, can help you with your New Year's Resolution (or any time of the year) to be more efficient at the office. The author is a psychologist and consultant who helps companies enhance productivity and train managers.
Genett's book is written in the form of a story about cousins who have different management styles. One is successful and has time for a nice family life and hobbies, and the other's life is a mess. But the second learns Genett's Six Steps of Effective Delegation and becomes as happy and successful as his cousin.
It sounds hokey, but it's actually an effective way to impart these tips. This isn't some dry textbook, but a useful tool for learning how to efficiently delegate responsibility - and be successful at it. It's short enough to breeze through, and the tips are clearly marked along the way.

An easy read, but one that offers some significant take-aways! The concepts are so simple, but often overlooked in practice. Donna's tips can be applied not only in business, but also to raising children!

This is a fresh, fun, simply communicated approach to helping managers delegate effectively and enjoy the results. A quick read but a serious lesson. I recommend it highly!!

You can read this one in about an hour, but you will probably want to read it twice. Excellent refresher or beginner for managers. I was surprised how a little self-reflection prompted by this book helped me hone my delegation skills. I have a colleague who keeps the 'quick reference' that comes with the book on hand at all times, and uses the steps to review his project list every week. The story is a bit simplistic, but it gets the point across.

Format: Hardcover
Some parables are great stories, but not "real world stories". This book made sense to me!

Similar to the One Minute Manager books, but the two main characters are not "super hero types".

Excellent summaries on key points, and an executive summary list at the end of the book.

A fun, easy read that could help you become a more effective delegator.

This is a very clever and entertaining story that teaches simple, important steps for more effective time, work, and life management. Delegation is difficult for many of us successful people, but Dr. Genett inspires us to stretch for the purposes of stress reduction and optimal performance.
Highly recommend.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By RichCanadian on October 3, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book because I feel I need additional delegation skills and techniques... tips, ideas, examples. What I got was a childish storybook about "the guy who could delegate well" and "the guy who couldn't delegate well". Its a storybook and quite honestly, the real contents of the book could be summarized on a single page.

If you are looking for a very basic and simple book about delegation that reads like it was written for a young child .. you've come to the right place. Anyone running a serious business and looking for real management and delegation advice, should look elsewhere.

Format: Hardcover
I expected more concrete advice regarding follow up and accountability. Also, I find "Minute Mangager"-style business parables annoying. The book has some good points, though they could have been presented in a couple pages of punchy prose.
