Roger E. Allen, Author Dutton Books $19.95 (176p) ISBN 978-0-525-93898-9
Management, as Allen reminds us, is a very serious subject. Unfortunately, though, his presentation of substantive issues-business purpose, managerial skills, motivation-is tenuous and underdeveloped; and his coverage of organizational theory is anemic, even when addressing the pivotal ideas of Peter Drucker, Theodore Levitt and Douglas MacGregor. Allen, a management consultant, selects A.A. Milne's classic characters to probe managerial functions in ``an unfamiliar context, which will allow us to think about them in a new way.'' But his ``new way'' fails to inspire. 75,000 first printing; Fortune Book Club and QPB selections; published simultaneously on Penguin-Highbridge Audio. (Nov.)
