I have had this book for years. But, I am working on my reviews and thought I would put one our for this book. I have probably read this book, at least, three times. I have used references from this book many times more than this during graduate school. Phillips does a great job breaking down Lincoln's MWA (Managing while Walking Around) theory. Lincoln felt that the best way to "manage" people was in the midst of them. You cannot know what your staff is doing unless you can see what they are doing, speak with them at their level and be where they are. I use this in my own management. I would recommend this book and have done so many, many times. The book is also short enough to be an easy-read, while educational in it's theories.
However, the compare contrast model that he used was a little disconnected. The stories of Lincoln and the way he reviewed them afterwards were very patchy. It felt like being in Sunday school, listening to a Bible story and then hearing the pastor relate the parable to something we experience in the real world. I feel like you can use anything as an analogy, but when it comes to relating what Lincoln did in the war to what we experience on a daily basis, I just didn't feel it.
Shipping was very quick.
Soft cover book.
