Managing Oneself is a well written, inspiring book on the need to control and direct lives in order to gain and retain a foothold in the ever-changing global work culture. The book emphasises that it is essential for every person to be their own manager and promote their own interests, to survive and thrive in this world. This requires one to be acutely aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses, the values one stands by, and the guiding principles of their life. This will make it easier for a person to find the right work environment to operate from, as well as change the course of action if the need arises, to find something more suitable. It stresses on the need to take advantage of one’s strengths in order to contribute to one’s organisation or workplace and make the fifty odd working years of one’s life the most productive and successful years. The book advises readers on how they can make the most of every opportunity and create a niche for themselves in their organisation. Peter F. Drucker was born on the 19th of November, 1909, in Vienna, Austria, and received his doctorate in Public and International law from the University of Frankfurt in 1931. He was one of the most significant management consultants of his time and worked with several global corporations and government bodies in Japan, U.S.A., and Canada. He was also a Professor of Management at New York University for almost 20 years and was the Clarke Professor of Social Science and Management at Claremont Graduate University. Drucker is the author of 39 books, the most notable being The Essential Drucker, The Practice Of Management, and Concept Of the Corporation. He set-up the Drucker Archives at Claremont Graduate University in 1999 and the University’s management school was named Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management in his honour. He passed away in 2005.

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: with ambition, drive, and talent, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession regardless of where you started out. But with opportunity comes responsibility. Companies today aren't managing their knowledge workers' careers. Instead, you must be your own chief executive officer. That means it's up to you to carve out your place in the world and know when to change course. And it's up to you to keep yourself engaged and productive during a career that may span some 50 years. In Managing Oneself, Peter Drucker explains how to do it. The keys: Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself by identifying your most valuable strengths and most dangerous weaknesses. Articulate how you learn and work with others and what your most deeply held values are. Describe the type of work environment where you can make the greatest contribution. Only when you operate with a combination of your strengths and self-knowledge can you achieve true and lasting excellence. Managing Oneself identifies the probing questions you need to ask to gain the insights essential for taking charge of your career. Peter Drucker was a writer, teacher, and consultant. His thirty-four books have been published in more than seventy languages. He founded the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management, and counseled thirteen governments, public services institutions, and major corporations.
