Smart managers know that a business can't achieve success on one person's merit alone. These books address the finer points of collaboration between employees.

LEARNING FROM THE LINKS: Mastering Management Using Lessons from GolfDavid K. Hurst. Free Press, $25 (304p) ISBN 0-684-86501-7

The Free Press is onto something. Earlier this month, it published Management Lessons from the ER, drawing a correlation between business and medical decisions. Now comes a book about the connection between management and golf. Speaker and consultant Hurst presents a dense yet informative guide to bridging the gap between ideas and action. Observing golf and management as complex systems, he demonstrates how performances in both activities can decline suddenly, and that, when seeking a solution, managers—and golfers—shouldn't settle for a "one swing fits all" approach. Rather, they should pay attention to detail, hone technique through disciplined practice and experiment with multiple ways of achieving acceptable outcomes. Heavy on theory, Hurst's book will appeal to a serious readership. (June 13)
