Loved this book. It summaries around 20 management and leadership books and is a great overview or refresher on the subject. Would recommend.

An asset to your leadership collection!

If you could sum up Management and Leadership in three words, what would they be?

Useful, dense, broad

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I listened to it mostly in the car.

Any additional comments?

I was curious to try this program as it's structure sounded interesting. I was glad I did. Sometimes I wish the author would go deeper on certain points, but obviously this program is intended to cover a vast amount of material, as opposed to a very small amount of material but more in depth. Overall I think it is a useful asset to your leadership collection. It is also much easier to compare and contrast styles when you here them back to back.

Management and Leadership covered a lot of ground. It talked about the different strategies touted by various "experts" in the field. A foundational book for those who manage others.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to quite a few books on management and they tend to be hit or miss. This book was overall good. There were a few chapters I wasn't a big fan of but I suppose that is to be expected with this type of format. Overall most of the summaries were good.
