    If you could sum up HBR's 10 Must Reads on Managing Yourself in three words, what would they be?

    Great review material


    Any additional comments?

    After 25 years in management at a Fortune 500 company I was familiar with the messages these 10 articles delivered. Each of them offers tips and techniques that when culled to address my personal needs create a map that allows me to be more efficient and effective. I was disappointed that I had not researched the topics well enough to understand the most of the material wasn't current research. It's still very applicable in many ways though.

    "Not a "must read" for a business person"

    Only a few of the articles were interesting but not "must reads" for a business person. Perhaps the articles were novel at the time they were published. Since then, many of the insightful topics have been expanded into books. A business person would recognize some of the authors like Peter F. Drucker ("The Effective Executive"), Jim Collins ("Good to Great"), and Daniel Goleman ("Emotional Intelligence").

    "Essential Listening for Leaders and Aspiring Leaders"

    The content within this audio book hit important topics such as understating ones strength and weakness, understanding the basics of emotional intelligence in order to better manage your work. The monkey discussion hot the nail on the head. Get the monkey off of your back. Delegate and coach subordinates. Much more great topics. Must read.

    "The elusive art and science of managing oneself .."

    A bit of a mixed bag, some articles were impactful and relevant, others came across as a checklist of do and don't.

    Managing your energy, not your time and primal leadership resonated the most with me. The idea that something as soft as "a leaders mood" affects followers and performance is novice and a refreshing fresh perspective to take.

    All in all, A good read.

    Story
    "Annoying Reading Structure"

    The Narrator jumps from the article to the "Idea in brief" and "Idea in practice" sections. This causes three very annoying problems:
    1. It is imposible to know when each section finishes and he is continuing with the article.
    2. The flow of the article story is suddenly interrupted by those sections.
    3. As those sections are summaries of the article, it is really confusing to hear the same words repeated without a proper structure (a few times I wondered if the audiobook went a few minutes backward, as I was hearing the same words again).

    The solution to these problems is simple: read those two sections either at the beginning or end of each article, but not in the middle!

    I only realized about this silly mistake when I bought the printed copy and decided to combine it with the audio book.

    "Helpful for junior executives"

    This is the 2nd HBR Must Reads that I finished, the other one is on Change Management and is not an Audible Book. I particularly liked the monkey on the back metaphor which encourages executives to let their people think of way forward solutions instead of trying to take on too much responsibilities. Truly helpful for junior executives like me.
