90 MANAGEMENT QUOTES FROM THE WORLD’S BEST THINKERS – THE INTRIGUING, FAST, AND FOCUSED ROUTE TO SUCCESS.

The Little Book of Big Management Wisdom outlines 90 of the greatest management quotations ever. The majority of quotes have been taken from legendary business leaders and commentators, including Warren Buffet and Peter Drucker. However, there are a few surprise inclusions from such people as Robert Frost and Elvis Presley.

This is perhaps Chicken Soup for the Business Manager. There are some interesting quotes in the book, with some useful insights. If used well, it could be a really useful book. At the same time I hope I am never unfortunate enough to have a David Brent-esque experience with my manager hauling me in, pulling out the book and opening it to a particular page, to then read out some particular pear of wisdom. The challenge of this book might well be that 90 quotes is too many to remember off by heart, and yet, with only two pages on each one, it might also be too short to learn enough about it. Then again perhaps this is something for those looking for two to five minute moments of inspiration.  This is one in a series of other books on other aspects of management and coaching as well.

This might be a really helpful book for you, and I do like a lot of the people he quoted. It did also made me think that to get the real insights I probably need to read the actual books referred to as well. The challenge is perhaps that this book should be a starting point rather than the last word in management insights.
