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.

Spot on real life Plant Management overview guide!

Excellent guide to Plant Management and from experienced people that have obviously faced the many issues that you come up against at work. I really liked the use of Sequence instead of Department and the articulation / vocabulary used to describe situations and people. Very well written and narrated, I will recommend to my fellow plant managers and supervisors. Thankyou to the authors to put this book together.
