    The book makes an important point that different people bring different skills and talents to the workplace Not everyone is meant to be a manager While this seems like a duh statement, a surprising number of managers seem to have no idea what to do with someone who isn t a Penguin manager.Written in a light, humorous style, this book is easy to read and comprehend Take it from an Owl.
