Library JournalMcCormack follows his best seller, What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School (LJ 8/84), with this third in a series designed around the anecdotes, examples, and insights of this successful executive. Skeptical of management or leadership fads and trends, McCormack turns to more fundamental aspects of management, such as dealing with people, managing money, focusing on future growth, hiring the right person, and rewarding people appropriately. All these insightful personal thoughts are based on his strong principles honed over his years of success with sports marketing and athlete management and may seem opposed to the thinking of many of today's New Age of business gurus. His personalized approach to meetings, managing creativity, organization charts, performance reviews, core business interests, and leadership counterbalance the alternative research-based focus of other writers in this heavily saturated genre. Because of his prior notoriety, look for this to be a most-requested item. Recommended for most public libraries.-Dale F. Farris, Groves, Tex.
Recognizing that every manager must have a set of core beliefs, Mark McCormack shares his principles for success using a no-nonsense style and numerous anecdotes.
