Editorial Reviews

From Scientific American

About The Author:

Peter F. Drucker was born in 1909 in Vienna and was educated there and in England. He received his doctorate in public and international law while working as a newspaper reporter in Frankfurt, Germany, and then worked as an economist for an international bank in London. In 1937 he came to the United States. Drucker's management books and analyses of economics and society are widely read and respected throughout the world and have been translated into more than twenty languages. He has also written a lively autobiography, two novels, and several volumes of essays. He has been a frequent contributor to various magazines and journals over the years and is an editorial columnist of the Wall Street Journal.

Drucker has had a distinguished career as a teacher, first as professor of politics and philosophy at Bennington College, then for more than twenty years as a professor of management at the Graduate Business School of New York University. Since 1971 he has been Clark Professor of Social Science at Claremont Graduate School in California.

For more than forty years, Drucker has been adviser and consultant on basic policies and long-range trends to businesses, public and private institutions, and government agencies in the United States and abroad. He has received over a dozen honorary doctorates from universities in five countries.

Drucker has four children and six grandchildren. A hiker and a student of Japan and Japanese art, he lives with his wife, Doris, in Claremont, California.

Review

"Peter Drucker's perceptions of the trends and forces at work shaping society today and tomorrow not only fascinate and instruct but may be ignored only at our peril."--Walter B. Wriston, former chairman, "Citicorp"The most important management thinker of our time."--Warren Bennis"Any book by Drucker is rewarding and it is impossible to read the man without learning a lot...Drucker's ideas continue to display a force and resonance that leave him pretty much in a class by himself."--"Fortune"His writings are landmarks of the managerial profession."--"Harvard Business Review
