Review:
Managing Yourself

Mike Pedler, Tom Boydell

Lemos & Crane (1999)

ISBN: 1898001553

This is a shorter book at 222 pages, and whilst aimed at managers, has lessons for anyone who feels that they are losing control of their work or study activities. This book does not focus on specific conditions like anxiety and depression but emphasises the importance of knowing, valuing and being yourself. The book contains various questionnaires which the reader can use to assess where they are at and what they might wish to change. Like the book by Butler and Hope the emphasis is on developing personal skills. But this book is also concerned with helping you to manage the organisation within which you are operating.
