About the Author:

Born in Vienna in 1909, Peter F. Drucker was educated in Austria and England. From 1929 he was a newspaper correspondent abroad and an economist for an international bank in London. Since 1937 he has been in the United States, first as an economist for a group of British banks and insurance companies, and later as a management consultant to several of the country's largest companies, as well as leading companies abroad. Drucker has since had a distinguished career as a teacher, first as Professor of Politics and Philosophy at Bennington College, then for more than twenty years as Professor of Management at the Graduate Business School of New York University. Since 1971 he has been Clarke Professor of Social Science at Claremont Graduate School in California. In addition to his management books, Peter Drucker is also renowned for his prophetic books analysing politics, economics and society. These books span fifty years of modern history beginning with The End of Economic Man (1939) and including The Practice of Management; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Managing in the Next Society; Management Challenges in the 21st Century; The Effective Executive and The Essential Drucker.

From AudioFile:

Beginning with an interview in 1992 with HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW, Peter Drucker talks about managing and leading companies and organizations, and coping with the changes of the late twentieth century. Published in 1995, Drucker's book describes business management styles, and discusses the changing needs of the workplace. Knowledge workers, information-based businesses, and continuing education are just three of the topics examined by the master of management. Joseph Campanella clearly elucidates each of the points, allowing the listener to absorb each concept. Slightly dated (there is no mention of the Internet), this book still serves as a foundation for managers and executives of all sized companies.
