Management is all about getting results through other people's effort.

Anyone who has ever tried managing people, however, will know it isn't as easy as you might think.

Help is at hand in this useful little book that explains how to get the best out of others – even if it seems impossible.

Introduction to Management
Although we tend to think of management in terms of the organization of a
company, and some may regard management as equivalent to business
administration and therefore exclude management in places outside the
commercial sector, in reality management structures are evident throughout
society, from government bodies through military forces, right down to
personal home environments.
This is because management may be defined as all the activities carried out by
one or more people with the aim of planning and controlling the activities of
other people so that an objective can be achieved that would not have been
possible through individuals acting independently.
Most accepted authorities on management believe that there are several parts
to the concept of management:
 Planning
 Organizing
 Staffing
 Leading
 Controlling
This means that anyone in a managerial role will carry out the above functions
of planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling to varying degrees,
depending on the specific needs, practices and methods of the organization,
and according to the level at which the managing is taking place. For example,
lower level managers may not have too much input on staffing, as this might
be handled by an authority above them. However, a seam that does run
through all levels of management is that managers are engaged in getting
things done through other people.

    That's a sample?? other books at least give several pages so we can see if it's beneficial. Not buying a book I can't actually preview.
