    I feel the most important factor for me to buy read this book was the fact, it was written by Drucker, whom some refer to as the father of modern management, and the tittle was about the future challenges And also, my initiation to this book through the pre published version of Chap 6 in HBR Now, I beg to differ from many that have to say this book is easy to understand This was one of the few books that I had to try vv hard to keep my flow and concentration One reason, I could attribute reading Chap 6 from this book is this isn t for my personality, this isn t written in the style where in I can perform at my best or could this book be overloaded with mumbo jumbo of management terms which isn t easy to comprehend No doubt you are to gain a swift knowledge about history of management, fascinating insights into some of the key business leaders and politicians of the last century, etc This book meets its objective in making the reader rethink the basic assumptions we hold, makes us aware of what the future has As the author himself writes as part of the introduction this is not a book of PREDICTIONS, not a book about FUTURE it deals with exclusively with TOMORROW S hot issues The challenges and issues discussed in it are already with us in every one of the developed countries So this should have u...

    My first Drucker, so I didn t know what to expect He s spot on with the knowledge worker concepts and how different these types of jobs and careers are turning out as opposed to 20th century models I didn t fully understand some of the accounting financial management content, but I really enjoyed it when Drucker pulled in hist...

    I have to rate this as a 5 again for Drucker Peter Drucker is visionary and intuitively prophetic in his style and arguments I often find myself being mildly amazed by the strongly relevant perceptiveness he brings out in his writing and wishing I were able to have such insight and perspicacity in my own reasoning and thinking As I alluded to with the other Drucker book I reviewed on this web...
