WINNER CMI MANAGEMENT BOOK OF THE YEAR -- IF YOU ONLY READ ONE MANAGEMENT TITLE THIS YEAR MAKE IT MANAGING BY HENRY MINTZBERG. "This is a great read: a work of rich description and insight rather than a theory of managing, and it will stand the test of time." Professor Nigel Nicholson, Management Today "[Mintzberg's] understanding of what good, socially useful management looks like leads him to make several clear statements of principle in his important new book." Stefan Stern, Financial Times "this is pretty much the perfect book on what can sometimes be a dull or repetitive subject. This title is neither, which alone is a startling accomplishment." thebookbag.co.uk " I'd suggest finding time to read this book". Richard Cree, Director " It tackles the most important issues of management practice head-on. It considers the intense variety of the job and shows how managers can become truly effective. It makes sense of what might, in the broadest sense, be the world's most important job." Business Executive, February 2010
