after I've given my first to a friend who liked it so much that s/he kept it. This is a well-structured, clear, concise guide on how to hit the ground running in a leadership position. The authors' approach favors "this is what works--do it" over touchy-feely, less generally useful philosophizing. Whether you are a seasoned leader or a first-time supervisor, don't embark on a new position without this!

An enjoyable read with excellent sugestions, ideas, and examples. Especially valuable if you have never been a manager. There are so many great suggestions made without a lot of management theory to weed through. Made me feel confident in my abilities when my new position made me feel in over my head.

This was the first management book I read and I didn't realize how good it was until I read a couple of others. This book has the most thorough and practical advice of all the management books I've read.

No book is going to give you the magic bullet of management and this book seems to acknowledge that. If you enjoy being treated like an adult and aren't out looking for a "Snake Oil" magic management cure-all I would recommend this book (If you enjoyed "Who Moved My Cheese" might I recommend you stop reading this review and go look at "Frog and Toad Are Friends").

Also, while the title claims this book is focused on the "First 12 Months" of your new management position most of the methods and examples it gives aren't specific to that time period--although that is the best time to start.

I read this book several years ago, and I have used the pragmatic advice over and over in my career. Chapter three has been particularly valuable because it has kept me focused upon the principle of making my boss look good!

Time after time, Mr. Betof and Mr. Harwood present the difficult choices and harsh realities of leadership and give you guidance as to what to do. I don't agree with everything they advise, but without question they warn you about what you will face when you are in charge and at least give you a practical plan to work from.

If you aspire to lead, I would recommend reading this book now and then watch leaders to observe how they deal with their challenges and decide what you think works. I applaud the authors' effort to outline a plan of action, but I trust that you will develop your own version for better or worse as you learn.

The great thing about this book is that it addresses the power and politics of the business world. I have seen quite a few promising but naive managers fail because they were blind-sided by coniving opponents. This book is useful to prepare good people to succeed and thereby make companies successful.
