When Hank Gilman started his career, he aspired to be a great journalist. But just a few years later, he became an editor and suddenly found himself in charge of a slew of difficult reporters—without a clue how to manage them.Plenty of managers start out this way, never asking, expecting, or training to be responsible for others. These accidental bosses often find that learning to manage is like learning to swim by being dropped into the deep end of the pool.Now the deputy managing editor at Fortune, Gilman learned the hard way about what makes a good boss. He shares his insights from the good, bad, ugly, entertaining, and sometimes just plain bizarre stories from more than two decades in the management trenches.

I'm surprised that so many people said that because they don't work in Media that this book doesn't apply to them and wasn't useful. Though the examples were either print-media and sports, the lessons were universal and things that anyone who manages staff, should be doing.

An easy read, focusing on the author's experience in journalism. I was expecting the book to be different.
