Item description for Manager Mechanics: People Skills for First-Time Managers (Capital Business) (Capital Business) by Eric P. Bloom...
In a fun, fast, accessible format--Manager Mechanics serves as both "mentor" and guide for newly minted managers who find themselves confronted with a wide-range of questions from how to hire and fire, to how to manage friends and balance budgets. Manager Mechanics comes to the rescue by giving first-timers the practical knowledge and political insights they need to perform successfully in their new management role, with a particular focus on people skills and good judgment. New and seasoned managers will gain techniques and proven approaches for leading their teams, hiring top talent, navigating company politics, avoiding career-limiting mistakes, and producing high-quality, well-planned results. The "Key Points" sections at the end of each chapter summarize the most critical skills and solidify the manager's fresh knowledge.

More About Eric P. Bloom
"Over the 25 years I've been in business, I've worked for a few great managers, a number of good managers, and a few, well, not good managers. From the great managers, I learned about leadership, courage, professional competence, and the many other traits that we aspire to attain. From the good managers, I learned about solid management practice, the importance of understanding your job, and the reasons for doing it well. From the less-than-good managers, I learned how not to manage, how not to treat your team, and how it feels to be poorly managed. My goal in writing this book is to provide you, a new manager, with knowledge that will help you grow professionally, help you help your subordinates to grow professionally, and help you contribute to your company's success."

Bird's Eye View for Newbies Dec 7, 2006
After reading a quick snippet on Eric's book in the paper, we ordered a copy to preview for possible use. I am the Dean of Students for a Quick-Service restaurant company with 100+ stores. We are always on the look out for books to use in courses or even just to add to our "Suggested Reading List."
Eric's book is a quick read that gives a bird's eye view to new managers. This book would be helpful for people who are just kicking off their career and need a quick reference guide on what to expect.
The book is written with humor and insight that makes it enjoyable.
Having this on the shelf of a new manager's office alongside some deeper reference guides and a Rolodex for the suggested resources.
As a member of HR, I think Eric did a good job at pointing out how helpful that resource can be with dealing with employee concerns.
