This easy-to-read book prepares engineers to fulfill their managerial responsibilities, acquire useful business perspectives, and take on the much-needed leadership roles to meet the challenges in the new millennium. The book is organized in three parts: Part I reviews the basic functions of engineering management; Part II provides backgrounds in cost accounting, financial analysis, financial management and marketing management; and Part III readies the reader for exercising leadership in managing technologies through discussions related to engineers as managers/leaders, ethics, web-based tools, globalization and engineering management in the decades to come. For engineering professionals who have an interest in becoming managers and/or leaders in their field.

I obviously did not buy this book by choice (it was part of a graduate school class I was taking). Nevertheless, I have to say the book is very well organized and the ideas well presented. Definitely a book I recommend for the Engineering Management professional.
This book is very specific and to the point. Enough information to cover what engineering management is. The size of the book is space friendly but be careful whit the pages since the paper is extremely fragil, "read it away from water".
Lean and mean management style is described in this book. Some excellent managers that I have met in my career are described by this book, so this book is true to its core.
