I've read a number of books about management by different world-known gurus in this area, but among the kind"Managing" is the best ever I've come across so far. It's a "must" for reading for anyone who is involved in the management of any organization at any level.
I really wonder why this book is not popular nowadays and stopped being published at all. Tha't real pity. All the cases are real and taken from real life. I always favour the business books written on the base of real experience, but I've read a number of books about management by different world-known gurus in this area, but among the kind"Managing" is the best ever I've come across so far. I always favour the business books written on the base of real experience, but not theory.
There are so many good management books by theoritical gurus in this field, but none of them can be compared to the one written by someone who actually did himself or went throught what he wrote. While reading i've found so many similar cases to what happening in the business world of our days.
The book opened my eyes and made me understand the human nature better than before. Mar 17, Felix rated it really liked it Shelves: memoirs , management , business.
Well worth reading. I took off a star because he paints a very lopsided picture of LBOs as an unadulterated good. Maybe when it's done by people like him, yes, but often it's done by profiteering hacks and politicians' cronies and nothing good comes out of it.

Geneen was born on January 22, in Bournemouth , Hampshire, England. Between and he was senior vice president of Raytheon , developing his management structure, allowing a large degree of freedom for divisions while maintaining a high degree of financial and other accountability, which was surprising as he had been ejected from his prior employer, Jones and Laughlin Steel Company , for reckless management of the company books. He extended its interests from manufacturing of telegraph equipment into insurance, hotels , real estate management, and other areas. Under Geneen's management, ITT became the archetypal modern multinational conglomerate. ITT grew primarily through a series of approximately acquisitions and mergers in 80 countries.
