If you are, as I am, a new manager, this book will be invaluable to you!

I bought this book shortly after it's publication, and to this day I believe this is one of the best written and no-nonsense reference book for any level of management. It is a real bargain when you consider how much the "flavor of the month" management book goes for these days. Moreover, when you look at most of those publications, what you get is a restatement of the obvious and little, if any roll-up-your-sleeves guidance on what to do on your own to make it happen; the book is often just the hook for the training event or the consulting engagement.
In contrast to the others, the contributors of Every Manager's Desk Reference do not stop at giving you background on each topic, they actually list specific questions to help you assess and think through a particular situation, provide you with direct action steps you can take and the reasons why you should, and tips on how you can make things happen. It is written in an easy to read, conversational style that does not waste words. I highly recommend it.
