Not only is this a perfect book for managers, it's a book that could help anyone with their very lives!

I'm 64, care for my bedridden husband, and have to "run the show."

Yes, even we "Doing it all, and doing it alone types" sometimes need a reminder. When things, and others, get out of whak, we need to take a look at our lives, and do what we can to make it better. Oh how we forget when chaos hits us. We often run in circles just trying to keep up. When this happens, we are on the wrong track, and we need some GOOD examples of how to make the road easier to manage. This book does even more than that.
I literly (almost) swallowed this book, and it actually changed me. I saw what I was doing wrong, and took action right away. IT WORKED! On the first day I saw results.
I must confess I knew, and had practiced many of the answers he offers, but when chaos creaps up on you, you somehow don't notice until your ready to tear your hair out.
I'm so happy I read this book, it worked for me, and it can for you. Even if your not a manager, you can manage your life again, and for me, it was a God send.
Don't give up, read the book, use it, get your life back, you won't regret it.

Great book. I would highly recommend.

Those words pop off the back cover to entice prospective readers to open the book. Combine that phrase with the subtitle about contrarian ways to improve leadership effectiveness and you begin to gain an idea of what this book is like. Frankly, I wasn't sure if I'd get a laugh a page or serious stuff. Turns out I got both!

Rinke, an experienced executive leader, management consultant, professional speaker, and author presents alternatives to the old saws that populate so many leadership books. Listen to some of the chapter headings: Knowledge is Not Power. Don't Manage People. Don't Be Proud. Don't Have People Work for You. Don't Focus on the Bottom Line. Don't Satisfy Customers. Are you getting the idea that you might be in for an interesting ride?

Each chapter lightly pokes fun at the common belief, though not as obviously as I expected it would. Readers will be surprised at the strong treatment of leadership skills, illustrated with stories that bring them to life. The lessons are presented in a way that holds interest and teaches practicality.

Laugh? This book includes something unique; I have not seen this done before. In each chapter, just before the summary, there is a brief section titled "Smile." Rinke shares a bit of humor with the reader to keep the book light and to demonstrate that leadership should be fun, not laborious.

If you've spent any time in leadership positions, you'll identify with the proverbial advice...and can probably create your own thinking about what Rinke teaches us. You'll spin a paragraph or two before you wonder where to go next. Rinke will be there to take you further down the path to success.

Don't Oil the Squeaky Wheel is a Leadership Roadmap. This book is hands-on and realistic; it validates the very essence of what leaders need to do to succeed.

He gives numerous examples and techniques that allow one to assess their own management and leadership style and "diagnose" the areas in which behavior should be modified or changed. This is a how-to book that you will not want to put down and a "must have" for your professional library. And if you think Wolf's books are entertaining...see Wolf Rinke in person! He will "wow" you and your organization into greater awareness and efficiencies.

This is a great book to jog your thinking and uncake your brain so you don't keep doing what you have been doing.
Rinke's sage advice will cause you to think a bit differently and try a few new tricks that will give you an edge in leading and managing your organization.
I particularly liked chapter 10, Don't Have People Work for You and chapter 13, Trust All the People All the Time. These chapters provide great insights and ideas for leading and managing a diverse workforce with plenty of Generation X and Millenium Group associates.
This is the kind of book that does not require great study or a huge reading investment, but provides great reading enjoyment and a big payoff in sound advice.

This book is a practical and fun way to learn how to be a more effective leader. As a small business owner, I found the book particularly helpful because it made me question some of the management principles I used to believe in. For instance, I learned the value of trusting my employees--a concept that was initially foreign to me. Once I learned that most people want to do the right thing, I stopped micromanaging and it improved our firm's performance as well as my relationships with my employees. This book is also very engaging and fun to read--not some management text that will make your eyes glaze over. I highly recommend this book!
  • Dianantrius
Dr. Rinke has used a fun approach to outline the necessary skills to improve leadership skills. By taking the backdoor approach he shows you exactly what to do. The book is full of wisdom, examples, techniques and humor. It should be required reading for any manager or leader.
This is undoubtedly one of the best leadership books ever written. Wolf Rinke offers an enlightening and light hearted view on the all-important business concepts of great leadership. His reflections provide a fresh outlook and guide for leaders in any industry. Wolf Rinke has inspired me to change my mental model on leadership and truely change how I lead. I plan to recommend this book as a "must read" for my entire leadership team.
