Book Review: "The Daily Drucker"

This was a great book I skimmed through when I had a brief break back over the holidays to step into the local Barnes and Nobles. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
  • Are you a great actor in a terrible play? What are you going to do about it? (From February 11)
  • Do not separate personal values of what is right and wrong from the values you put into practice at work (April 27)
  • Make sure in the pursuit of economic performance you develop people (June 28)
  • Create a time log of your activities. Eliminate those activities that are time wasters (September 2)
  • Explain why this is true: in order for a business to "do good," it must first "do well," and indeed very well (December 22)
As many of you already know, Peter Drucker is arguably the most influential thinker in management and perhaps business. He wrote books for around 60 years and The Daily Drucker is a collection of his most powerful thoughts and lessons spread out over a year, giving you a nice dose of Drucker everyday. This book makes a great gift for the business inclined.
