Summary

With a new foreword by Ken Blanchard.

The original, best-selling blockbuster which has transformed businesses worldwide.

The blockbuster number-one international best-selling phenomenon is back...not that it ever really went away.

This easily read story quickly demonstrates three very practical management techniques: One Minute Goals, One Minute Praisings, and One Minute Reprimands.

The One Minute Manager also includes information on several studies in medicine and in the behavioural sciences, which help readers understand why these apparently simple methods work so well with so many people.

The book is brief, the language is simple, and best of all...it works.

Very cheesy and annoying

If you're looking for something "inspirational" then this isn't it. It's very American and patronising in places.

Awful

Couldn't listen to this book. The narration compared to a children's book. Condescending content. Granted it's dated so I suppose one must allow for that.

Was a bit fast and feel like the book will better

All I understand was that you should praise people when they do good and if they do bad then do a rebound or something. And try and get people to solve their own problems. Feel like these 1 hour books are a rip off.

Probably worth a listen

You might find some of this useful although, despite it's update, it still feels a bit old school (and perhaps a little condescending) in its approach. There are other far more inspiring books out there in my view.

Short and Simple

Short, simple, but effective. You could read a 1 page summary of the book and you won't miss anything.
