A Year with Peter Drucker

A Year with Peter Drucker

by Joseph A. Maciariello


If you don't know who Peter Drucker is, just get yourself a copy of Managing Oneself. It's very short (the whole audio is just 45 minutes), yet incredibly life-changing. After reading a few pages, you'll know why Peter Drucker is often called the father of modern management.

The author of A Year with Peter Drucker, Joseph A. Maciariello, used to be one of Drucker's close companions before he died in 2005 at the age of 95. Fed up with the fact that Drucker's great management practices have been watered down and gobbled up by talking heads in recent decades, he decided to publish an all-encompassing compendium, based on Drucker's personal mentorship program.
