One a day
Now here's the perfect New Year's book for the office. Instead of those insipid "Deep Thought A Day" calendars, place The Daily Drucker on your desk or in your car for quick access to core thinking on the philosophy of business. Peter Drucker, for the uninitiated, is one of the most widely followed economics and management thinkers of our time. Many business academics consider him the "founding father" of the study of management. He has published more than 25 books, was a longtime columnist for The Wall Street Journal and has written extensively about individuals, management, society and change in the marketplace. The Daily Drucker will allow you to read and integrate his keen business insights at work. The day-by-day format presents a quick but excellent primer on Drucker's philosophy as well as a work exercise (which could be completed in less than five minutes) that integrates the reading into the business day.
