Booklist Review

Grove is president of Intel Corporation, a microchip manufacturer, and the author of a business-advice column for the San Jose Mercury News, the fruits of which are gathered here in this question-and-answer approach to acceptable on-the-job conduct. Grove tackles myriad topics relevant to managers and employees alike, including how to fire an incompetent and/or long-term worker, how to ask for a raise, when to offer criticism about a peer, dealing with emotional employees, the effects of corporate takeovers, and more. The simple format will make this handy guide appealing to readers from all walks of life (and all employment situations). Recommended for the active public library business collection.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The ``Dear Abby of the Workplace'' here ``offers valuable advice, in the form of answers to letters, to everyone from mail clerk to board chairman. Grove's basic message is that the manager should remember his or her task is primarily dealing with people,'' commented PW of this management handbook. (September) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
