Summer Reading: Five management classics
Although Peter Drucker was a self-described workaholic, he did take time off each summer to hike amid the peaks of Colorado, reflect on the previous year’s successes and failures, and, of course, read.
As you head to the beach or the mountains with your own stack of books (or your Kindle, Nook, or iPad), keep in mind five classics about management and leadership that Drucker himself loved. All appeared before his own landmark The Practice of Management was published in 1954. "Every one of these books," Drucker noted, "laid firm and lasting foundations."
