Absolute must read for new managers

This is a fantastic read for the first time manager. No matter what industry you are in, this is the book on how to manage people. You will learn management types and avoid mistakes first time managers make. This is comprehensive book that will show you how to interview job applicants, discipline staff based on their existing work ethics (lifelong slacker, vs. occasional slip up) and how to keep imporving oneself as a manager too because like everythign in life, that is work in progress... I have read the fifth edition of this book and it is a true gem.

A useful manual for new managers

Many rookie managers feel like imposters until they grow into their jobs, but if you are scaling that learning curve, help has arrived. Authors Loren B. Belker and Gary S. Topchik provide managerial coaching for new occupants of corner offices (or, at least, of cubes with windows). The text provides novice managers with concrete examples, solid discussions, helpful suggestions and insights on a wide menu of corporate challenges. Although the book is redundant in spots, and needs more extensive chapter summaries, it is a terrific tutorial for managers. We recommend this book to everyone in managerial slots, especially those who just arrived.

A complete overview of managment at starter level

This book covers the A-Z of managment for the first time manager, as well as the more experienced. The author consentrates on getting your mind into the correct thaught pattern to get the absolute most out of your staff in virtually any industry. Easy to read and can also be used as a quick reference guide. I'd also recommend it to empolyees who would like a promotion but don't know what they need to do to be managment material.

Great Book!

As someone aspiring to the management level, this book was instrumental in preparing me for my interview. It provides a wealth of information that is crucial to the new manager. This book should be mandatory for new managers and used as a refresher for the experienced. Now, I use this book daily as a reference tool.

Highly Recommended

A great book for the first time manager. I found it to be a fast read filled with common sense advise and examples, not meaningless or unrealistic details or excercises. Useful and relevant from the first chapters to the end. Helped me a great deal.
