From Publishers Weekly:

In this latest in the One Minute Manager series, the authors chastise executives who never have time for family or their own job enhancement because they accept too many responsibilities--"monkeys" clinging to their backs--that properly belong to their staffs. Based on seminars conducted by the late Oncken, the book explains in simple-minded if abstract terms how to achieve a balance between supervision and delegation for reduced tension and improved productivity. "There is a high correlation between self-reliance and morale," stress the authors. With humor and logic they describe the delicate business of assigning monkeys to the right masters and keeping them healthy, i.e., fed and cared for: " . . . if monkeys are managed properly, you don't have to manage people so much." Unequivocal assignments, proper coaching and interim check-ups, according to this program, can lead to effective delegation and, with it, a better life at home and office. BOMC selection.
