For new managers, this is a must!<br />

The book goes through various aspects of introducing yourself in a management role. From delegating to building relationships within and outside the organization.

Concise

As usual, HBR provides 10 useful short related lectures. It was ok to listen at 2.5x speed so didn't take long to listen. Some interesting bits to remember.
