“...a very useful paperback for anyone involved in managing and leading staff...there really is a wide coverage of topics”.  British Dental Association News August 2008

From the Author:

"Managers may find reading book for dummies is smart move."
This is the title of the September 2, 1996 Chicago Tribune article reviewing Managing For Dummies. We agree wholeheartedly. Our point in writing the book was to provide a resource, a "toolbox," for managers in the '90s -- particularly those who are new to management or experienced managers who need to brush up on their skills. And these are real tools presented by real managers. Not theory. Not mumbo jumbo. We cover delegation, leadership, hiring, firing, mentoring, playing office politics, creating teams, budgeting, harnessing technology, and much, much, more. Despite their popularity, quick fixes don't work. Forget the management fad-of-the-month club. Management is a life-long learning process that doesn't end when a manager finishes watching a 25-minute video. Managing For Dummies brings together today's best management thought and techniques and presents them all in one place. Bob and I hope you enjoy the book! Write us with your comments.
