The book is divided into chapters for different management roles. Every chapter describes in a practical and pragmatic way the challenges that come with a role. Unfortunately some generic information about assessment, conflict handling, and culture is hidden in mutliple chapters. Therefore is it not enough to read a few chapters for your actual situation to get the whole picture. You have to get through every chapter to extract important information that is applicable to all management roles.
