Good management
The secret of good management is avoiding bad management. Similarly, the test of good managers is that they cannot be observed or remembered for the deviations and idiosyncrasies which make bad managers so memorable. Real management
The acid test of the true manager under pressure is that he or she is the only one not immediately doing something. The real manager is thinking before acting. Even if it's only a bluff. Proper management
If you devote even a fragment of the working day to some thought about managing properly you can rise above the norm. Right management
Good management is not necessarily about flair or excellence. It may often be about getting things right more than 90 per cent of the time, by avoiding the crass errors of your contemporaries. This is a Bluffer's Guide®. Bluffer's Guides®, Bluffer's Guide®, Bluffer's® and Bluff Your Way® are Registered Trademarks.

Critic reviews

"Amusing, short, perceptive ... Good relaxation, and as an alternative to the cost of a pack of cigarettes or a double Scotch, considerably more rewarding." (The Accountant's Magazine)
"World-weary light-heartedness about managers, their sins, careers and prospects... The Bluffer's Guide to Management fits into a coat pocket and would make waiting for a late train a positive delight." (The Journal of the American Chamber of Commerce)
"Attempts to be humorous about company management are plentiful, but this book achieves the rare distinction of actually being funny. " (The Accountant )
