    A must for anybody involved in management

    This book is a must read for anybody who is involved in management or aspires to get into it. Having completed my MBA in one of the top business schools, I only wish I read this book before I even went to school - it would not only help me in my job, but also help start more discussions, on which MBA study relies.

    Druker is discussing many aspects of management, the history of this discipline, its role in our society, the problems it faces and the future. He thoroughly analyzes the trend of moving to society where most of the workers are knowledge workers (as opposed to manual workers) and discusses the implications on management.
    This book is not a collection of "how-to"'s but rather a top-down analysis of institution of management.

    Some additional topics the authors analyzes:
    - Social impact and responsibility of businesses
    - Management and it's non-profit counterpart Administration (Druker discusses why those two essentially the same disciplines branched out)
    - Difference between manual and knowledge worker
    - Social changes and how they affect management

    Overall, this is a great book, and in my opinion every person would benefit from reading it. It is not a small book but it reads well (I have a tendency of falling asleep when reading large books, but it kept me awake)

    The only problem I see with the electronic edition (it may be pertaining only to viewing it on e-reader) - large portions of the text use all capital letters, which makes it somewhat difficult to read at first and I kept catching myself missing the ends of sentences.
