"The Daily Drucker" short review

Short review of The Daily Drucker
by Robert Morris

The Daily Drucker is a book about management principles. It is divided into 366 short chapters each one dealing with an idea taken from Peter Drucker, a management scholar.

Drucker wrote 39 well-respected books on management, translated into over thirty languages. So it is not easy to summarize his teachings into 366 one-page chapters. However, the book is very well organized. Each page has a succinct title, a quotation, followed by an excerpt from Drucker, and at the bottom an action point or advice on how to turn the theory into practice.

In the first section of the review, give a short synopsis of the book's contents.
In the second section of the review, evaluate the quality of the book.

Drucker's Book is an important life's management manual. "What do you want to be remembered for?". i asked myself this question over and over..Yes, i would lie to be remembered what i will be cheerful and do what i like to be. Managing one's mood and mind are the first lesson that we need to learn.

Drucker also wrote: "People who don't take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year. People who do take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year. "

You can quibble with his stats, but I think he had in mind something like, "“Every second that you live you are never going to get back. You are never going to get to change what you said, didn’t say, did, or didn’t do. Live how you want to live. Act how you want to be remembered, because you never know how long or short you are going to be here.”
