This book is a welcome addition to the management advice field. It¿s not just okay to be the boss, supervisors at all levels need to be reminded that management is their responsibility ¿ and they need to be given the tools to manage. Bruce Tulgan¿s book accomplishes this. Workers, especially those new to the job, need to be supervised and told what to do (and what not to do). Communication, immediate feedback and skill development are all critical to an employee's success -- all things that the author has been talking about for years in his previous books. In my field, I see undermanagement everyday. And undermanaged employees make poor managers. I'm glad Bruce Tulgan now has people talking about it and is working to break the cycle.

Sammy was lifted from the table she peered out the airhokes but couldnt see anything. "What are u gonna name her lizzy?" The mother asked. "I dont know im tryng to decide between Sparkle,Fluffy,or Furball." Lizzy replied. "I think she looks like a Sweety." The mom said. "YES!" lizzy practically screamed. Samantha mewed coverng her sensitive ears. "Sorry Sweety." Lizzy said. "Thats gonna get old." Sammy muttered but it came out a mew. The car came to a stop. Here they were.

Sharp and right to the point. Cuts through miles of bull and focuses on strong management tools. Excellent book!

I've had an opportunity to both see Bruce Tulgan speak as well as having read a number of his books. As I've worked in both real estate and financial services, I can pick out those who are being managed well 'not too many' and those who are not. Tulgan nails it when he suggests that the costs of poor management are staggeringly high in any industry but especially those that require a high degree of customer service. Well written, an easy read, chock full of hands on advice informative and compelling at the same time. Tough to put down - I read it in two sittings!

Tulgan has done it again. One of the best management gurus out there gives us what might be his best work yet. As always, Tulgan has an uncanny ability to reveal the future of business, the workplace, and management. A must read for all business managers!

I found Bruce Tulgan's book 'its ok to be the boss' to be easy to understand while still providing smart and simple ways to help anyone who is a boss and deals with employees. I reccomend it!
