"I am thrilled with the new One Minute Manager - a hugely helpful resource in a constantly changing world" --Claire Diaz-Ortiz, Former Head of corporate social Innovation- Twitter Inc
This book needs no introduction. Long before there were these large bible-like must do/don't of management, there was this slim 100 page book. It sets the tone for the best approach that you should have as a manager. I gift this book to my associates who took up the People Manager(mentor) role at our company. It's simple yet powerful, concise & unbelievably effective. If you have never read any management book, I highly recommend this be your first book on management!! --Naimesh Kundanani - Delhi, 6 Mar 2013

About the content of the book:
The One Minute Manager reveals three secrets to productive and efficient managing as told through a young man's search for the perfect managing and leading skills. These three secrets are: One minute goals, one minute employee praisings, and one minute reprimand.
These are all good advise for all the managers how to become a better leader and be more effective in their job.
It listened to it twice during my commuting. Got me ready to improve my management style.
Meh!. Cute and folksy, common sense. Light weight homilies, one minute insight--don't make a BFD out of anything.
While you or I may have thought of it, or part of it at some point, it's nice to have a quick book lay it all out for you to digest and internalize as a whole philosophy for managing any group of people.
Unfortunately the majority of people that move up to the title of manager have little to no training ... managing people. My personal experience is that anyone without management training decides that managing = "cracking the whip" and then doesn't understand when he not only doesn't get the results he expected but that his entire team wishes he would die in a fire.
This book should be required reading for anyone promoted to manager.
