Publisher's Summary

A guide to Peter Drucker's best management principles, inspired by the author's interview with the "father of modern management" himself.

In late 2003, Peter Drucker invited Jeffrey Krames to his home in Claremont, California, for a rare interview. The 94-year-old Drucker, who had amassed an unprecedented body of published work, comprised of many hundreds of thousands of pages, spent a full day sharing his insights from a lifetime of management consulting and writing.

This resulting audiobook is a simple guide that distills the essential wisdom from Drucker's considerable body of work. It includes:

  • The key to Drucker's ideas
  • His seminal management and leadership insights and strategies
  • The evolution of Drucker's thinking
  • His thoughts on leadership, partnering with professionals, and the changing role of information and technology

    Gain a fresh perspective on this extraordinary thinker. By including many contemporary examples, this audiobook brings a part of Drucker's incredible body of knowledge to life and shows how so many of his seminal ideas are as relevant now as when they were written.

    This is a step-by-step blueprint to implementing Drucker's best ideas into your own organization.

      "Learn From the Master"

      The author shares what he learned during an extended interview of the 94 year old Drucker in 2003 which proved to be one of Drucker's last interviews. There is an abundance of information, insights, and wisdom and if you aren't already well versed in Drucker's thought, this informative audio is a great introduction. Yes, reading Peter Drucker's own three-dozen plus books and myriad articles is the ideal way to learn directly from the master, but this audio makes it possible to feel as if we are in Peter Drucker's presence, and achieves that to an extent no one else has.

      "A thoughtful perspective on Drucker..."

      This book is a thorough review of the life and work of Peter Drucker. It educates in a very pleasant fashion. It's a must read to anyone who has never been exposed to Drucker's ideas. And brings a different perspective about his work to any student of Drucker's.

      "Drucker – the Father of Management"

      For the last two years, I have tried to rediscover my business, its purpose, and also myself.

      It was in the last year of my civil engineering degree studies – way back in 1978 – that I heard of Peter Drucker: it was prescribed reading.
      Last year, I bought this audiobook and started to listen to it this year.

      If you want to know more about the Father of management, and do not know where to start, this is the ideal book that summarises his best and most important ideas (concepts).
      It is a well structured audiobook, each chapter has its own idea, which the author explores and puts in the context and timeline of Peter Drucker's historical journey.
      It appears that the event on which this book is based, the long interview which the author conducted with Peter Drucker a few years before his death, surprised Jeffrey Krames' theories about Jack Welch, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, JF Kennedy.
      This is a really great book and its purpose should be to encourage listeners (and readers) to discover, or rediscover, and explore the writings of Peter Drucker.
      The narration is good, clear and complements the author's book.
      I encourage you to get it and to learn about Peter Drucker, the Father of modern management.

      "little content stretched too far"

      story had repetitive themes and word usage. It was not engaging. lessons were not supported with any evidence or examples.

      "Great Insight in a Thought Leader"

      Although I have studied many of truckers concepts, I feel this book brought to light many of the thought patterns in a cohesive, very readable, and fun way to go about it.

      I think the author does a great job in leading the reader experience a little bit of the thrill that the author had while interviewing Peter Drucker.

      This was a great book and a quick read.

      "Good introduction to Drucker"

      I had always been interested in Peter Drucker, but I had never read any of his books. this was an interesting combination of biography, anthology, and commentary on the art and science of management.this makes me more interested in reading more about Peter Drucker.

      "Not The Best"

      I was hoping for a more insightful and personal reflection on Drucker. Save a few interesting parts theres not much in this book you can't get elsewhere in a lot more detail.

      "Drucker the consultant"

      The book brings out so many great concept and ideas that were there in druckers books, but the fact that Drucker never was a manager in his real life makes him a consultant, a great one. still the work needs champoins
