‘The second edition of Ann Cunliffe’s excellent book is an even sharper introduction to the critical study of management. It is again a thought-provoking and insightful take on the ethical issues facing managers in modern organizations. An important, intelligent yet readable book that students will love’
'Ann Cunliffe brings new life to the most thorny dilemmas of management. Beautifully matched to the historical moment, the second edition tackles complex philosophical ideas and ethical questions in prose even more accessible and practical. Its pivotal trio of managerial practice - relationship, reflection, and responsibility - will inspire managers, students and critics alike. A thin book that delivers a deep read, guiding us all to think and communicate in fresh ways bound to vastly improve organizational life.'
Excellent and well-written text
It is too superficial for a postgraduate student who like to specialize in healthcare management
An excellent book. Comprehensive, well-written and thought provoking.
Very engaging and well-written. Ann Cunliffe is very well respected in the field, which is definitely a reason for selecting this book.
I always recommend this book (and others in the series) to my students. I really like the critical tone of the books, which suits our approach towards business subjects. The size and price is appealing to students, and the books provide a great alternative to a text book for a course overview.
An engaging, and challenging, text that enhances students' perspectives on Management.
interesting book for those students who are interested in a more philosophical approach to management issues
A brief but interesting book to introduce students to the concepts of management.
The book did not fit well enough in the overall theme of the course
Not enough detail for ILM learners to reflect in their assignments for my liking.
although brief, soes cover some interesinting ideas in a new way
Essential reading for any manager who wants to really understand management.
A good read for students in preparation for the course
Excellent and very accessible text. Recommended widely both within and outside courses.
This insightful work on management is at the same time quite challenging - in my opinion - for students not familiar with traditional and critical management theories and perspectives. Interesting refernces to recent studies on different management topics abound in the book, therefore, I used this book not as a Course literature, but I reccomended it for students working on their Bachelor and Master Thesis as well as PhD.
