Editorial Reviews


“I personally witnessed this fascinating backstory between two of my best friends, Peter Drucker and Bob Buford. Now everyone can benefit from the amazing conversations Bob had with one of the brightest minds of all time.”
Founding Pastor of Saddleback Church and author of The Purpose Driven Life

“I loved Drucker & Me. I can’t think of two more influential people, not only in my life but in the lives of many others, than Peter Drucker and Bob Buford. Learning from their friendship and stimulating interactions is a gift you won’t want to miss!”
Coauthor of The One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

"Being mentored by Peter Drucker was one of God's great gifts to my ministry. I remain indebted to Bob Buford for making that happen."
—BILL HYBELS, Founding Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church

“Only Bob Buford could capture the essence of Peter Drucker in such a moving and authentic way, for who was as close to Peter as Bob Buford? Bob’s book is pure Peter.”
President and CEO of the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute (Originally the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management)

“In addition to being a terrific read, Drucker & Me provides an intimate portrait of Peter Drucker as we’ve never seen him before: as a close friend and mentor. In this way, it reveals not only important organizational lessons but also wonderful life lessons. There are lots of Drucker books out there at this point, but this one is a true standout.”
Executive Director of the Drucker Institute and Columnist for

“A remarkable friendship is revealed in a compelling, inspirational, and challenging way, and the reader becomes part of this special relationship.”
Dean of Wake Forest School of Business and Retired Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo

“A mentor is a person who multiplies his or her impact by investing in the lives and work of others. Peter Drucker was such a mentor to Bob Buford and then Bob became a mentor to countless others. This is the heartwarming story of how two men changed each others’ lives and then leveraged that transformation to meet ‘human needs and alleviate suffering’ through a chain reaction that is still changing our world.”
President of World Vision US and Author of The Hole in Our Gospel and Unfinished

Drucker & Me is absolutely outstanding. I read it once, took notes, and have returned twice again. I am delighted to be able to publicly recognize Bob and this fine work. This little book punches well above its weight! Imbued with wisdom, it is a powerful story of profound collaboration and inspired leadership, teaching us all how to lead more useful lives in service of others.”
Chairman and Cofounder of the Bridgespan Group

“I did not know Peter Drucker personally yet have admired his work from a distance since as far as I can remember. Drucker & Me provides a perspective on this important man that few would have of any man—one that even further enhances our collective view of his incredible contributions to our work here. I am grateful for Bob’s effort in sharing this with all of us.”
Executive Vice President and President of Herman Miller North America and Chairman of the Board of Advisors for the Drucker Institute

Drucker & Me is a wonderful example of what mentoring is supposed to be. The story is a warm relationship between mentor and his pupil. It is a model for anyone who is in a mentoring relationship and demonstrates how both people benefit from it. I felt I was part of the conversation. A bonus was the wisdom that Peter Drucker imparted that is valuable to all of us. It is worth rereading regularly. One of the best books I have read in recent years.”
Cofounder of InterWest Partners and Philanthropist

“This inspiring story of an entrepreneur’s collaboration with the legendary management thinker Peter Drucker shows that great ideas combined with passionate execution really can change the world.”
Chief Executive Officer and Director of J. C. Penney

“Bob Buford creates another great book—and as an extra benefit we get the perceptive wisdom of Peter Drucker added to the mix as well.”
CEO and Owner of The Anschutz Company and Philanthropist

“Peter Drucker rarely wrote forewords to books by other authors. Yet he did it twice for Bob Buford. That gives you an idea of the mutual respect Drucker and Buford had for each other. Their relationship comes alive in Drucker & Me, and in the process we learn much about the lives of both men that can be a beacon for our self-development.”
Managing Editor of Leader to Leader and author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way

“What an extraordinary story—the life partnership between Bob Buford, the world’s most brilliant entrepreneur for faith, and Peter Drucker, the leading management thinker of the last century—and how it has changed the world!”
CEO of Ashoka: Innovators for the Public

“I have been an admirer of Bob Buford’s life-changing books for many years. Drucker & Me is my new favorite. The book is very engaging and skillfully personalizes the relationship between Bob and Peter Drucker, providing unique and wonderful insights on Drucker as a man and a friend.”
CEO, Brand Velocity, Inc.

Drucker & Me is about the power of partnership: Peter Drucker’s genius joined to Bob Buford’s receptive, entrepreneurial energy. Until now, few people have realized this synergistic relationship literally changed the face of today’s church. A book filled with great insights any spiritual leader can benefit from, this is a story that needs to be told.”
Pastor, Founder of Men’s Fraternity
