4-0 out of 5 stars a different definition of consistency
This entry in Ken Blanchard's One Minute Manager Library uses the narrative style that has for better or worse become standard in business literature to teach `situational leadership' in terms of flexibility, diagnosis, and partnering.
5-0 out of 5 stars By Far My Favorite
This is by far my favorite Blanchard book. Situational Leadership is now MY leadership style!

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and simple book on situational leadership
I am a fan of the One Minute Manager series, having read "The One Minute Manager" and the "The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey."This booktells the story of an "entrepreneur" who seeks advice from the One Minute Manager.In the process, it covers the basics of situational leadership in a concise, easy to read style.The text covers the four basic leadership styles -- directing, coaching, supporting, and delegating.It also discusses matching a leadership style appropriate for various development levels.Like the other One Manager Manager books, I see myself re-reading and referencing this text.Highly recommended. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I used this text in my MBA stats class and have found it to be very informative and useful.I found the examples for Excel and Minitab to be well written and of great use.I would recommend this book for anyone who uses statistics on a frequent basis or simply would like a good reference manual in their library.

1-0 out of 5 stars 12th ed. has problems
The 12th edition of this book contains a surprising number of errors.I am currently using this book for a statistics course in an MBA program.We are twelve chapters into the book now and in most every chapter I have found a mistake; more often than not there are multiple mistakes.What is worse is that the majority of the mistakes are in the practice problems which are where the student learns to apply the skills.This serves to create confusion and frustration on the student's part.Some of the mistakes are sloppy editing while others more significant are providing wrong information.The editors need to take another look at this book and the authors should also take note.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rule#1 Rules!
Overall this is the best investment guide I've found yet. Rule #1 is "Don't lose money." Fair enough; no one wants to lose $$. But how? The author answers that question. First, buy wonderful companies. For Town, that means companies with strong and consistent growth: 10% minimum average annual growth for EPS, free cash flow, sales, and book value for the last 10 years. Efficient, well-managed companies, with great return (10% or higher) on invested capital. Once you've found that company, determine the fair value, and buy it ONLY when it's at a 50% discount, thus giving you a "margin of safety" against the vagaries of the "Mr. Market."
5-0 out of 5 stars TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THIS ONE!
When you read this book, you'll discover:
5-0 out of 5 stars Good Stock market information
He tells you to buy the stock at a discount price and that is part of the method of how you will not lose money. You use formulas to figure out what it will be worth in the future and then decide how much you want to pay today.

This good is very helpful, both graphically and technically.I does a great job of explaining everything in plain english and reenforcing those lesson with real world experience.The one complain i have is that there is no answer key so that I can verify my answer (after all, one slip up can effect every following financial document).

4-0 out of 5 stars For making managers remember what really matters
This book is full of information of things that current managers have forgotten. Every new project is wanted done with less money, less time and with higher quality than old projects, putting a lot of pressure to the project team. Managers do things that they believe is good for the project but actually damages the project (and the company) at long term. I have seen many co-workers leave my company for issues like the ones described in this book. Managers and company owners: Please read it!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A solid look at the role of people in a company
This book takes a look at the role people, specifically creative people, play in a company.It offers various insights into management, the environment, and team "building".The second edition also adds a final section with eight new chapters with later insights.

Editorial Review

It began with a simple $27 loan. After witnessing the cycle of poverty that kept many poor women enslaved to high-interest loan sharks in Bangladesh, Dr. Muhammad Yunus lent money to 42 women so they could purchase bamboo to make and sell stools. In a short time, the women were able to repay the loans while continuing to support themselves and their families. With that initial eye-opening success, the seeds of the Grameen Bank, and the concept of microcredit, were planted.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Straight from the Founder
If you are interested in microfinance, this book is a prerequisite.Dr. Yunus gives a historical account of the rise of micro-credit and the Grameen Bank.Of course, he is also the biggest advocate of the program.Therefore, most of his arguments are pro-expansion of micro-credit.In spite of this, he manages to show a clear and compelling picture of the micro-finance industry.But, make sure you balance the information with other microfinance books that does not proselytize as much.A good example is "Beyond Micro-Credit" by Thomas Fisher.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
Yunus tells a great story about his bank and its battle against poverty.Outstanding business model for someone interested in micro lending.

5-0 out of 5 stars a must read

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Lean book at there on Product Development
Lean originated on the production floor over sixty years ago in Japan. But Toyota product development has been sadly overlooked by corporate America. Where is the connection between Toyota stellar production practices and Toyota product development? You can't argue with the tried and true principles to systematically eliminating waste--that is the bedrock of the lean philosophy. Lean thinking is making inroads to a number of different environments and industries beyond discrete assembly like car making. Does waste occur in non-manufacturing? Oh yes, and it has largely been an untapped, dormant opportunity for applying lean. Improvement initiatives are being re-focused on office settings and now product development. There aren't many product development(PD)lean books out there but, Liker's book is excellent--it is so thorough, well researched, logical and well written! A lean novice may have difficulty because it is not "lean 101" and PD is not quite the same as lean manufacturing. But, if I forced to pick a single book on lean product development--this would be my #1 pick. It is such a good start point for lean PD. The lean benefits are self evident: cut development time in half and never miss milestones?That's has been the Toyota norm. Liker's book will walk you thru the 14 principles on how to get there the subsystem levels (Processes-People-Tools/Technology). If your PD efforts are adrift, it's reassessment time. Start here. You won't be sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read
A very detailed and at times difficult read. However, it is a must for anyone involved in product development.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Toyota Product Development System
I found Morgan and Liker's new book The Toyota Product Development System to be an excellent discussion of the key fundamentals that are missing in Detroit today based on my experience in the automotive industry. The most important reason Toyota is best is because of the way they develop and value people. This book describes the basics required to build a great Engineering organization. Engineering is the foundation that drives cost, quality and timing. This book should be required reading for everyone in the automobile industry from top management down.Morgan and Liker provide a great map for going forward for any company that designs and manufactures a product regardless of industry. The key is to start the Journey. This book is a great place to start. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Introductory
This isn't a bad text for an introduction to management in IT. It's not technical and certainly places emphasis on managing IT infrastructures. If you're moving up from being a follower to directing and managing employees and departments, then this book may help to get you a glimpse into it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent General Overview of the IT Industry as of 1/06.

4-0 out of 5 stars Read this if you write!
For anyone who writes in a business environment-which is probably most people reading this-The Business Style Handbook is an extremely useful reference. I especially appreciated the introductory material, which provides the basis for great marketing copy for those of us who write and edit for a living. And it's a great relief to have a handy reference for handling all those marketing-speak and tech-speak neologisms and inconsistencies.
5-0 out of 5 stars How the Business Style Handbook Helped Me
I'm glad I had a copy of The Business Style Handbook when a big argument erupted in my department. One group said you have to write "an NYSE stock" while another said you have to write "a NSYE stock." I took out a copy of The Business Style Handbook (which my wife gave me for Christmas to help me improve my e-mail) to settle the dispute. By the way, it should be written "an NYSE stock."It's one of the first times I've been on the right side of a grammar argument. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent concept; a bit repetitive
This book offers a great way to approach difficult conversations.There are several templates in the book to show the reader how to do this.However, after reading it, it does tend to repeat certain aspects of the material.I am sure that some of that is for effect; but for someone who is capable of applying material quickly it can be somewhat boring.I still recommend it as a read, but I do not recommend that you need to completely read the book to get the overall message.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't consider buying it...
This is such a short and unsubstantial book- do not bother buying it. Go to your local book store or library, buy the coffee drink of your choice. You can read this in 1 1/2 hours. As others have said, it is written to the 5th grade level. As for the method shown in the book and the website, I would never use only a single simple tool alone. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. If you want to read a REAL book about this topic, read books by James O'Shaughnessy or by William O'Neil.

I bought 20 stocks with Greenblatt's list.Two quarters later i have lost 25 percent of my capital.Of the 20 stocks i picked from his list, only 8 are now on his list 5 months later!!!Wow!! What changed with his numbers SO quickly?Watch out for the Hussler!!You would think that Greenblatt already has enough money and wouldn't need to milk the consumer anymore with yet another book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Limited data from which author extrapolates
My jaw dropped a third of the way through the book when the author says that he tested his "magic formula" over a 17 year period beginning in 1988.Seventeen years?! That's a long time in one's life, but statistically speaking, seventeen years is an insufficient amount of data.Numerous studies using the Compustat database going back 50 years shows that formulas that work well in some decades do not work well in others.Greenblatt should have devised his formula using this 17 year period (1988-2004), and then tested the formula in an out of sample period, such as 1950-1987.Would it have worked as well in the out of sample time period?Maybe, maybe not.Greenblatt doesn't tell us.Major flaw. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars NOT TO BAd~!
This book was good but not terrific. after reading best sellers like Why we want you to be rich by Donald TRump and God Doesn't run a $2 Shop by Sage Saint Francis i found that this book just was not in the same leauge.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Shopaholic's Dream, Come True!
To say this book is written for females from a feminine perspective is a misnomer.While that may be true, it is also undeniable -- anyone reading this book will benefit from the author's practical and realistic advice. The entire book can be summed up in the four recommendations everyone can and should do to have financial solvency.Readers will enjoy and appreciate how the author compares things we do in our daily lives ( i.e., organize the closet) to be more efficient , as guidelines to getourfinancial house in order.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it for all women (and men) looking to become financially independent -- and have fun while doing it!
5-0 out of 5 stars Another straightforward financial book by Chatzky
Jean Chatzby has a special knack for reaching the average consumer and clarifying seemingly complex, frightening or confusing financial topics. Much of what she covers SHOULD be taught at home or in school but, if consumer spending patterns are any indication, people aren't picking up the information before adulthood...for whatever reason.

4-0 out of 5 stars All in all, it's worth a read
Eric Bischoff: Controversy Creates Cash is the autobiography of Eric Bischoff, who rightfully self boasts himself as the second most influential man in professional wrestling history, behind Vince McMahon. In his autobiography, he attempts to cover his side of the things. Although he does tell an interesting story, some things just seem to be missing.
3-0 out of 5 stars Bischoff doesn't tell all
I was expecting to read about Bischoff criticizing many WCW and WWE wrestlers because, if you've ever seen WWE Raw during a commercial break, Bischoff runs down a list of people in the wrestling industry who he believes will be angry with him when these certain people read his book.I don't think so.His opinions on the wrestlers are pretty brief and he doesn't do much in the way of putting down anyone.Disappointing.
4-0 out of 5 stars Well Written Read With A Lot Of Information
You learn a lot about Eric Bischoff and what has driven him.This book shows the side of him that we don't see in front of the camera.The information about the wrestling industy and the politics of it were very fascinating to someone who has been a fan for many years (particularly a fan of WCW).

4-0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking reading... but not convincing
I toally aggree that pattern recognizers and somebody who can see the big picture will lead the world. Right-brain activity adds color and mystry to our lives while left-brain activity let us understand why things they are. But fundamentally one has to have strong L-Directed skills to excel on anything at all. The L-Directed skills can be aquired later at life but R-Directed skills are more of natural. The book make us feel like if we all go persuit those R-Directed skills, we will all better off. To me, in the real world, it is only for thos ones who already master R-brain skills and happend to have some L-Brain potentials which has not been exploired.

3-0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking but...
A Whole New Mind is the kind of book that many life coaches will love. Pink presents ideas that will reassure us we can have fun while reaching success. Creativity wins. Meaning matters more than money. Your job (and even your industry) could be automated or exported out of existence.
5-0 out of 5 stars Worth reading
In this book, the author says that just like how we moved from the industrial age to the information age (computerization), now we are moving from the information age to a new era called "conceptual age". With the effects of globalization and abundant wealth in the western world (especially in US), there will be an increased demand for the right brain skills like creativity and empathy. Though it "feels" to be little exaggerated, it is quite interesting and worth reading. ... Read more
