Thorough, but hard to finish

It gave me some new ideas, but I struggled to finish it. Maybe because I found the pace a bit slow and the voice a bit grating.

Very good, straightforward and clear

Seemed a bit slow to get going but very good once I got in the rhythm of it. I am a mechanical engineer and would recommend as a straightforward guide and general advice on mangement to my peers. The book avoids the wooliness, theorising and padding out of a few ideas ommon in books of this type.

A broad spectrum of scope

The book is a fab overview of all levels and scopes of management. From mentoring interns up to CTO.

I’ve taken away handfuls of tips that’ll I’ll be putting into practice.
