    1. Mark Horstman Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Effective Manager book, this is one of the most wanted Mark Horstman author readers around the world.

    2. Let's make it clear since the very beginning:* this is NOT a book about leadership* it's a book about management -> efficient, pragmatic, focused on particular effectSo, if you're looking for tips, techniques, comments regarding: building teams, developing people, aligning to one vision, growing organization, creating a better workplace for everyone, etc. - this is NOT a book you're looking for.It isn't a book about project management either - you'll find here nothing about finance, risk, sta [...]

    3. Highlights:1. Your First Responsibility as a Manager Is to Achieve Results.2. Replacing employees is expensive. When someone leaves, there's the lost work that had been planned for, the cost of interviewing in both money and time, the likely higher salary that will be paid in the event of replacement, the time and expense of training the new employee, and the cost of less productivity by the new employee until that person can match the quality and quantity of work of the person who has left. 3. [...]

    4. The Effective Manager is a fantastic foundation for those of us learning management skills. I recommend this as a starting point if you want to learn to be a good manager.If you listen to the Manager Tools (MT) podcasts already, consider reading the book anyway. Yes, much of the book’s content is also in the MT Basics podcasts series. You’ll read about One On Ones, the Feedback Model, and coaching. I’ve learned about these tools in the podcasts before. But I appreciate having a cohesive, s [...]

    5. This book proposes and addresses the problem that front-line managers aren't very good, because they were promoted from their usual job functions into a role that wasn't well-defined, and demanded accountability for a nebulous set of deliverables. I liked it because it took an opinionated stance on the role of the front-line manager, and defined it around a value proposition that can easily be used to prioritize the myriad duties managers are called on to handle.The concepts are pragmatic. The b [...]

    6. Although I grew up in a house with hundreds of completely non-fictional books (if not more than a thousand), I guess that during childhood my inclination was towards prose and sci-fi. Yet not having read the astrophysics or metallurgy books, I still had a strong affinity towards chemistry and biology (for biology it was more the visual parts) and overall, the epistemological side of things. Poetry was not out of my reach but to be fair (now) it was harder for me to grasp it after I was older tha [...]

    7. I was very fortunate to come across Manager-Tools in 2005 when I took on management responsibilities. Since that time I have been avid listener to many Manager-Tools podcasts and in fact have attended the Manager-Tools effective manager and communicator courses; twice.Yet with everything I have learned from these interactions over the years, The Effective Manager is the book that puts it all together. The rhyme, reason and rationale of what it means to be a manager and more importantly, recommen [...]

    8. For fans of Horstman's long-running podcast, Manager Tools, this may be a bit of a redundant read, or, depending on how long you've listened, it may actually be a great, in-depth dive into Horstman's four central pillars of being an effective manager. Of course for those who have never heard of Horstman or the Manager Tools podcast, ti might all be new. In any case, the book focuses exclusively on how to implement and conduct one-on-ones (03s), feedback, coaching, and delegation. Horstman's bril [...]

    9. Good summary of Manager ToolsGood summary of Manager Tools when you dont have time to relisten the podcasts. If you arent familiar with Manager Tools, it is a good introduction to the essential podcasts.

    10. I wish I could give this five stars. I'm deeply grateful that I stumbled across the author's podcast thirteen years ago. I've learned a lot from him and there are some brilliant insights. I would recommend you read this book to learn about how to discuss behavior as a middle manager. He brilliantly outlines how to give feedback (good and bad), keep in touch without being a micromanager, help your direct reports learn new skills, and delegation. This is 85% of the book and some of the best materi [...]

    11. I just love it when I discover a great book exactly when I need it. That was definitely the case with The Effective Manager. Although it would have benefited me at any time in the last few years (including BEFORE I started managing), now is the time when I really need to put these lessons into place.Other reviews have made the point that this book focuses on management, rather than leadership, and some imply that there is a value judgment there. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure I buy into the dis [...]

    12. This is really a great introduction to what it takes to be an effective manager. They use the term effective as Peter Drucker meant it and the title is obviously an homage to Drucker's seminal The Effective Executive. Like Drucker's book, this one should be required reading for those starting a path towards a business degree. The book is short and contains actionable items that one can begin implementing and a timeline for rolling out the full set of Manager Tools. For those, like myself, who ar [...]

    13. Required reading for new managers Like many managers I was placed in the role before I knew what it entailed. All I knew was that I did not want to be a bumbling manager like some of the ones that came before me.A coworker in a similar situation recommended this book and the authors' podcasts and it has made all the differences.I have silent reports that I can now talk with. I have a team that alerts me to issues before they rise. I have an agile team that has adapted to a rapidly changing workp [...]

    14. I really like Horseman's Career Tools podcast which prepared me for interviews and my job search. His Manager Tools podcast is good too. His book covered how to give feedback to those who work directly for you and has some good tips. One good one I hadn't thought of was feedback is to encourage future effective behavior. Even though you should give feedback as quickly as possible, if you're angry about something, now isn't the time to give the feedback. Feedback isn't for you to vent to feel bet [...]

    15. Only two things to say about this book:1) Its the most practical, straightforward book on management that I've ever read (and I've read several).2) I've been using these tools for a few months now and I've seen it produce dividends. I'm a better manager and employee and my directs are growing, hitting their goals, and getting results. This is a great book and all managers should read it. 5/5

    16. Great read and actionable advice for a managerI love the manager tools podcasts. Having a companion to refer to is very helpful. Read the book before starting a new manager position with a new organization. I'm sure the techniques will serve me well in this new role. It also helps me remember the kind of manager I want to be and reminds me to discard the bad behaviors I've used in other jobs. Thanks.

    17. Quick read and straight to the point. It allows you to still maintain who you are and integrate that into an effective management style. Also, at under 200 pages, it is an effective use of your busy schedule too.

    18. I very rarely rate books 5 stars as I reserve this rating for those books that have an immediate and lasting impact on my life. To date, 16 of the 199 books I've entered into have earned this rating. Manager-Tools is not only my 17th 5-star book, it is without a doubt in the top 10 for the content and value packed into < 200 pages. In no particular order, my top 10 are; Atlas Shrugged, Candide, Today Matters: 12 Daily Practices to Guarantee Tomorrow's Success, The Total Money Makeover: A Pro [...]

    19. Thorough and Actionable StepsToo often, books offer oversimplified or vague details as to how to achieve improvement. This book is a wonderful compliment to the Manager Tools podcasts and website resources, and it truly offers clear step-by-step instructions.

    20. Best management book I've ever read. Extremely practical with lots of great examples and data to back up good practices. If you're responsible for leading anyone in any setting - business, sports, parenting, non-profit, church, wherever - there are some great insights to glean and practice here.

    21. A practical management book. This is one of the few books that focuses on the "how" of management not the airy themes and habits of good managers.A friend recommended this to me and what I appreciate is it provides a firm opinionated and, according to the authors, research based point of view on what to do and why. Even if you disagree or don't want to follow their guidelines to the letter — at least it provokes you to consider the implications of everyday management tactics such as One on One [...]

    22. Only three from me because it is primarily an overview of the outstanding advice that Horstman and Co. have been giving via their podcasts for the last decade or so.

    23. I have learned more about management from Mark Horstman than everyone else combined. The Effective Manager is an instant business classic.

    24. As a long time listener to the Manager Tools podcast, I was exited about the release of this book. It is great to have the core of their model in a book for reference.

    25. Excellent book and a must read for all new managers. If every manager followed the guidance in this book, we would all work for great leaders.

    26. Full of very practical and actionable advice. I've used some of these ideas and gotten a lot of value from the ones I've implemented.

    27. Pretty good practical advice with easy things to implement. Worthwhile to read it and remind yourself of best practices that we all migrate away from with time.
