"Entertaining and enlightening, this book is for any school leader interested in gaining fresh perspectives and seeking wisdom with practical applications." --The School Administrator
Hailed as “a warm and useful read,” A Class with Drucker brings to life invaluable advice from the world’s greatest thinker and writer on management. From 1975 to 1979, author William Cohen studied under the great Peter Drucker and became the first graduate of his doctoral program. What Drucker taught him literally changed his life. In a matter of a few years, he was recommissioned in the Air Force and rose to the rank of major general. Eventually, he became a full professor, management consultant, multibook author, and university president—all while maintaining a nearly lifelong friendship with the master.
In A Class with Drucker, Cohen shares many of Drucker’s teachings that never made it into his countless books and articles, ideas that were offered to his students in classroom or informal settings. Cohen expands on Drucker’s lessons with personal anecdotes about his teacher’s personality, lack of pretension, and interactions with students and others. He also shows how Drucker’s ideas can be applied to the real-world challenges managers face today. Enlightening and intriguing, this book will enable anyone to gain from the timeless wisdom of the inspiring man himself.

Did you know that Peter Drucker also advised Rick Warren? Pastor Rick went to him for advice years ago, and they met together twice a year for over 20 years, the years in which Saddleback Church grew into a mega-church and Rick Warren wrote the New York Times bestseller "The Purpose Driven Life" which we highly recommend. Rick Warren even spoke at Drucker's memorial service.
Business books seem to be about 80-20. 80% stinkers, 20% valuable. And then every so often that 20% turns out to have real gem. This book from Dr Cohen is a gem, with a lot of good, practical advice I can apply immediately to improve my bottom line. If you believe in continuing your business education with books, get this one. The advice is Peter Drucker's, and Dr Cohen fully credits the ideas to him, but I credit Dr Cohen for making these lessons readable, understandable, and easy to apply. Bravo!
