But in retirement, Harold Geneen with his collaborator Alvin Moscow has produced an excellent book that goes far in revealing Geneen’s view of himself and his world of business. Unlike the picture of cunning manipulator and power broker presented by his enemies, the Geneen who emerges in Managing is a man of simple beliefs whose driving force is an almost religious devotion to the principles and practice of good management. Geneen found his greatest self-expression and enjoyment in his work, which completely absorbed his life and most of his waking hours

While some have identified Harold Geneen as a tyrant with an egotistical bent for power, his book, Managing, written with Alvin Moscow, is full of valuable insight. To be fair, it's important to understand the events that shaped Geneen's personality. He was a product of the depression and it's well documented that people of the depression era were, by necessity, innovative and possessed an insatiable hunger for success. These traits can be seen in every part of Geneen's management style and are accurately reflected in his book. He was by no means a saint. But he knew every facet of the businesses and made it his business to weed out slop and ineffectiveness. He checked and rechecked his plans, changed them when necessary, and forced his people to do the same. To be fair, he was the consummate workaholic, but that's par for the course. Those that stayed, helped him grow a $760 million telephone company into a $17 billion multinational conglomerate. Several executives that worked with Geneen graduated to successive careers as Fortune 500 CEOs using his management principles. His well documented successes are accurately covered in this brief mosaic on managing. Full of his now famous quotes, each chapter, like the man, shrewdly covers the traits expected of management at any company. When you boil it down, it's about being a hands on, present, active and a responsible manager. Know your business, know what works, know your people, know who works, tell the truth, nip it end the bud, stick with what works, but change when necessary. Like Geneen says, "Never reduce the art management to a formula. All organizations large or small, military or civilian reflect the personality and character of those who lead them." Add this one to your library, it's a keeper.

There’s no disputing his performance and success but as for the book, don’t expect any huge pearls of wisdom. I read a ton of business books to help me become a great business consultant but I struggle to find a lot of valuable takeaways from this one. I did enjoy his take on entrepreneurship and how he judged a corporate employee vs. an entrepreneur.

This book is an absolute gem. Best book on management that I have ever read. I finish everything I read. Most books on management are written by people who never managed anything and it shows. When I started reading this book, I knew immediately that I wanted to read this book, to learn from its wisdom and to finish it. Books by authors such as Jeffrey Pfeffer or Rosabeth Moss Kanter take me many times longer to read....they are wordy, boring, overly academic, offer nothing new, repetitive, and have a tendency to state the obvious and attempt to masquerade the obvious through extraordinary complex academic language. Geneen has walked the walk...and done so successfully. God bless him.

Apparently I didn't read the description closely enough, and this is NOT THE BOOK. I thought it was an audio version of the book, but it's an interview with Harold Geneen (which is helpful, but not the book).

From time to time I re-read and re-read this book that offers invaluable insights in organizations. "Managers must manage". Only performance and results count. The statement of "If you don't achieve those results, you're not a manager." is awesome. We're still seeing in organizations when people explained away why things were not done. A must read for everyone who wants to change his/her lives. I did.

This is a book every business person should read, regardless of your field. He disregards managing theories because they simply don't work. Reading through, you learn how he got to where he got because he was willing to put in the time and dedication to work things out. He comes off as a micro-manager, but his methods proved effective.

Written 30 years ago and full of timeless wisdom from one of the original CEO super stars
I've read maybe 100 business books, many on the subject of management, starting with Peter Drucker. This is the best of the lot. An easy read, with many principles that have a lifetime of shelf life. I've read the book numberous times over twenty years, and now, as a consultant, give it out on a continuous basis. I'm currently order another thirty.
