I like the layout of the book and some of the bold statements, here is an example: If you don't lose 20% of your business on price, your prices aren't high enough.
I like the premise and agree with participative management and empowering people and I resonated with many of the stories where Belasco and Stayer fell off the bus.
What didn't work for me was the organization. The book jumps from here to there without transitions. I suppose it would work OK as a business devotional where you read one section every day, but for sustained reading it is hard work and worse, that impacts retention. If I invest the time to buy and read a business book, if I agree with what it says, I want to retain some of the information to apply and that is hard with lots of choppy little sections that do not flow.
Would I recommend the book? If you are struggling to overcome the "I am the guy in charge, let's move out" paradigm it could certainly be helpful. If you have already adopted an inclusive approach to management, this probably will not help you in your journey.
Although the book is rather old, the material is timeless.

absolutely spot on, i have bought many copies for misguided managers and still use it today many years on to clear the fog.
if you need a little help in your managerial duties have a read, there is light at the end of the tunnel
