When I was asked to read this book I can honestly say I wasn't thrilled. But truthfully it was very easy to read, very pleasant, and I truly enjoyed it. It is especially good for those who cannot stand the mundane reading of typical management books.

Once upon a time, in the early ’90s, a quartet of Atlanta organizational consultants – Hyler Bracey, Jack Rosenblum, Aubrey Sanford and Roy Trueblood – wrote this business management parable about a manager who grows from sour and crusty to sweet and caring. Their book caught the corporate world’s imagination and gave life to a “kinder, gentler” management style. Today, as authoritarian management tactics continue to fade and collaborative, empathetic leadership proves increasingly productive, their five axioms merit revisiting. These principles call for being understanding, supportive, perceptive, honest and compassionate. The story may be a bit schmaltzy, and it draws to a predictable conclusion; yet, because it departs from typical leadership tales and because it has hardily weathered the test of time, getAbstract recommends it to managers who want to succeed as leaders by being both effective and empathetic.

This book is a life application and consists of an easy to read 'story' about a man who is given a SECOND (or should I say, last) chance to learn and apply the suggestions regarding how he needs to treat his employees. Will he decide to use the second chance and apply the suggestions? Will he create a happy work environment for all? You will find this book difficult to put down once you pick it up. This is one book you will never forget! You'll want to share this book with your boss and his/her boss as well. We just ordered copies for each of our managers in our department.
