Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote this book because these steps have proven to work for me. I wanted to help all new managers and even some established managers with their tactics. I know that the steps in this book work because I have proven them at companies like Amazon.com,Office Depot, Brightpoint Inc and Target.

Format: Paperback
I'm reading a number of books about making a job transition and put this on the bottom of the pile. The few insights offered in the 45 pages of content are far outweighed by high school-style advice on "dealing with brown nosers" and how to have a conversation with an employee who has a "personal hygiene problem." A far superior book is The First 90 Days by Michael Watkins. Or, if you want help in making good professional decisions, see What Do I Do Now? by Charles Foster. Or if you need to know more about what makes a person a success in business, get The 100 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws of Business Success by Brian Tracy.

This book was extremely remedial and provided little insight relative to starting a new job. If you're starting a new job and want a roadmap for success I would suggest purchasing a book with some thought provoking substance.

An excellent example of why not to buy a book for its title. The prophetic cover photo depicts an empty wasteland. Between the covers lies a stream of consciousness devoid of research, common sense, practical experience and humor. The author must have devoted at least two hours to writing this book. No, it wouldn't have taken that long for a competent typist.

anyone who doesn't already know the extremely rudimentary "information" provided in this very elementary book wouldn't even make it through an interview. i have found few books as disappointing as this one. it's bad enough to make me wonder whether or not it's some kind of a hoax.

Format: Paperback
I read through this book in about an hour or so. I felt most of it would be very remedial for many managers. Since I am not a manager (and not going to be), much of this book's content did not pertain to me.
However, two topics did stand out. The description of the four managerial types (Laid Back, Ready-Fire-Aim, Popular & Hard Nose) with 'handling' suggestions would be useful for anyone at any level. The topic of preparing for the 'miss' (missed sales goal, missed product deliverable, missed date, etc.) was very informative,too. Few of us ever prepare to fail and when it happens to us, we are unprepared to explain it.
I decided NOT to keep this book as part of my permanent library, but I did give this book to someone who coachs people in job search for their personal lending library. It was worth the $8.75 I paid for it because I got free Amazon shipping, but not much more....

I agree that at the end it did lose a lot of steam at the end with the employee confrontation stuff. However, with regards to how you need to gain control of the ship, as well as keep your metrics up-to-date and ready for a talk was very beneficial. I'd say 70% of book is pure gold and I have referred to it over the years (usually after an especially bad failure).

He's giving you the skeleton to build upon. I would call this "Management 101" with the bare essentials. You'll definitely have to go elsewhere after, but at least you know what you are looking for. You'll find the "meat" in the books one of the one star reviewers listed.

At any game, you need the fundamentals to be absolutely perfect. Robinson I believes provides these so your foundation can be solid.
