Editorial Reviews

Review

“The best self-help piece that is ever written… Whenever I stall, I grab Managing Oneself.” ― Darius Faroux, author of Massive Life Successes, Founder of Procrastinate Zero, as seen on Medium

About the Author

Peter F. Drucker (1909–2005) is one of the best-known and most widely influential thinkers on the subject of management theory and practice, and his writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern corporation.

Often described as "the father of modern management theory," Drucker explored how people are organized across the business, government, and nonprofit sectors of society; he predicted many of the major business developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization, the rise of Japan to economic world power, the critical importance of marketing, and the emergence of the information society with its implicit necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the term "knowledge worker" and in his later life considered knowledge-worker productivity to be the next frontier of management.

Peter Drucker died on November 11, 2005, in Claremont, California. He had four children and six grandchildren.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good article, a bad book
By Cameron on April 20, 2016
If you're like me, you were recommended this book by Tai Lopez. If that's the case, why are you reading reviews? (I.e., don't listen to just anyone.)

This "book" isn't actually a book. It's a reprinting of an article published in Harvard Business Review January 2005, which I realized I had laying around the house! I read that first, then when I opened this book was rather shocked to realize it was an exact reprint stretched from 10 magazine pages to 50 in 24+ pt font size.

Frankly, this book isn't a book by the standards you probably have. As other reviewers have lamented, Drucker mentions something important then just moves on, giving no steps on how to go about figuring it out. What you get is a barebones explication of managing oneself, and it has a few good insights. The semantic point aside---that it shouldn't be called a book---you will probably learn a few pointers about managing oneself. But you will be greatly disappointed if you expect there to be much more than an outline of what you should do in general.

Here's what it covers:
What are my strengths?
How do I perform?
What are my values?
Where do I belong?
What should I contribute?
Responsibility for relationships
The second half of your life

You'll notice that they are mostly questions. The article really seems to just be a (guided) impetus to think about certain important things in your life. The shortness of the book is really a reflection that YOU have to do the work of figuring out the answers.
