This is an excellent book for both MBA students and the budding entrepreneur alike. It's often difficult distilling the technical knowledge that's crammed into you through university with the creative spirit and drive that fuels success. This book helps not only understand the history of management theory and the techniques of different managers, but also demonstrates how one's ability must be tied to shrewd planning, not just talent alone.

The detractors of this book will point out the fact that there are differing management theory 'branches', if you will; but they're missing the point of this book. No manager of firms large or small should take theory at face value -- the drive to constantly monitor and develop new algorithms improve efficiency. This book makes you aware of this need; while some purists will insist on certain studies or certain academic studies; I believe that the most successful individuals in industry are those that are able to meld intuition and theory towards product creation and management.

Written by the editor of the Economist, this book provides what can be described as an opinion -- and it is rather well versed at this venture, I would argue; I think this would be a phenomenal beginning to exploring a multitude of opinions and ideas that one should keep mindful of. Why? Because of the history it provides, and the narrative that you can see forming -- the author doesn't prevent you from arguing against his presentation of the data -- you are free to do so. However, he presents an argument that is held by many, and is worthy of noting at any point in one's career, whether it's a high school student that wishes to create a startup in his or her coming years, or a seasoned manager at a Fortune 500 company.

A good reminder of history, and a lesson in humility -- I think this book will find a good place in my reference shelf for sure!

About 15 years ago I stumbled with a copy of Witch Doctors, and what a great book it was. I loved then the to-the-point style of the authors, and went to read from them 'The Company' and 'Right Nation'.

Despite Wooldridge writing this one on his own (Micklethwaite writes only the foreword), this is a major step forward from Witch Doctors, revised after all the changes in the last decade and a half (the dot-com-bubble implosion, the global financial crisis, and many upcoming 'gurus' showing up).

The book offers interesting perspectives and opposing views to many of the fads in management, including some cold assessments on Malcolm Gladwell, Thomas Friedman and others.

I found in the book key perspectives (that keep both feet in the ground) about some of the great ideas and contributions from the management 'science', and liked how it exposes the BS that permeates some of these ideas

Business books are published at such a pace that it's impossible to keep
up with the latest ideas trumpeted by multitudes of gurus, professors,
and CEOs all contradicting each other and all insisting their one idea
is the only one you'll ever need. Different business schools embrace
different experts, preferably those on staff. Walk into any manager's
office and scan the bookshelves. You'll find more books on business than
Amazon has on advice for personal relationships. How can you find your
way through the maze of advice?

Easy--Adrian Wooldridge's book Masters of Management is a guide through
every aspect of management theories, strategies, gurus' credibility, and
CEO reminiscences. He has the uncanny ability to bring clarity to the
ideas floating in the vast ocean of business ideas, advice, and their
history, and future. The book contains more useful information than most
MBA programs, albeit in bite-sized pieces. Bibliographies for each
chapter refer you to more detailed information about the topics covered.

The Masters of Management is dense with information. Complex topics are
broken into two to four main points, making it easy to manage the load.
Ideas like globalization, business process redesign, or frugal
innovation are explained as inevitable, a fad, or a brilliant concept.
As the CEO of a start-up, all the information is timely and helpful.
Ideas that we are not ready to implement provide food for thought; his
opinions on globalization and Corporate Social Responsibility help us
with our current direction.

Wooldridge writes for The Economist, a periodical that produces the best
English-language journalism in the world. It shows. I found it impossible to scan
or dip because as soon as I start reading, I'm lost in interesting
tales, superbly written with clarity and wit. For example, this quote
creates very entertaining mental visions: "Christians and Hindus might
worship different gods, but they still have to wash their hair."

It's rare to find a book so comprehensive and useful. If you buy one
business book this year, you'll be doing yourself a favor by making it
Adrian Wooldridge's Masters of Management.
