Written for a male

i realky enjoyed the book and will take all the items to heart. Just a little surprised that they addressed the reader to be male and not genderless. I have had everything happen to me as a leader.

Long but comprehensive and reliable

No wishy washy theoretical expositions here. Experienced subject matter experts sharing the real perspective and solid advice. Covered I would say every single angle of approach to life as a Manufacturing Plant Manager. Can't see how it could be shorter and equally effective.

Good advice, pretty general

Good book. A lot of general advice like treat people with respect, don’t piss people off, etc. Good for young, new production supervisors in manufacturing.
