    Navigating a business requires not only doing “things right” but also doing the “right things,” which, in essence, means being both a good manager and a competent leader. If the weight of that responsibility panics you, pick up this book by management consultants John Cioffi and Ken Willig. They narrate a valuable crash course on management, peppering their lessons with the adventures of “Mike,” a fictional manager, and with numerous anonymous “true stories,” which the authors amassed from their experiences in the field. Although the book’s title rides the coattails of Stephen Covey’s classic The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, getAbstract finds that this savvy guide provides a basic, pragmatic road map for managers, especially novices.
