Summary

History's great achievers have always managed themselves. That, in large measure is what makes them great achievers. They were once rare exceptions, but in today's world most of us will have to learn to manage ourselves. Peter F. Drucker, author of Management Challenges for the 21st Century, explains that success in the knowledge economy comes to those who know themselves - their strengths, their values, and how they best perform. This article, which originally appeared in the March-April 1999 Harvard Business Review, is offered in audio form exclusively through Audible.

A life changing listen in just over 30 mins!

It's the kind of book that is perfect for the commuter. Literally after listening to 3/4 of the book and came into work and performed my support fiction with a noticeable confidence having had Mr Drucker reiterate the strengths that we have as individuals and recognises the strengths of others. Excellent read! Highly recommend!

Really insightful

This is a quick read/listen but packed with wisdom. Enjoyed it... I now understand a little more how and why I was more effective or least effective in certain roles and situations.

Great advice, especially for the price!

Very good advice on self management, with interesting examples. Clear and easy to understand. Short enough to stick with.

An area for a misunderstanding

I've purchased three of Druker's books from Audible. They are all quite good; however this one while also good is simply a chapter of two from one of the other books. That was disappointing and seems to me that Audible should have provided a head's up on that fact.

Review of M Oneself

The narration is faster then it should be. I am not a native English speaker so to follow, and makes notes is hard. Talks about general common sense concepts but gives them good wording.
