Booklist Review

This book is a compilation of 72 selections covering a broad range of subjects, drawn from "Manager's Journal," a column edited by Asman appearing in the Wall Street Journal. Each of the selections is several pages in length, and Asman suggests they are all related because, taken together, they demonstrate the concept of synergy, which has become one of those buzzwords that seem to mean anything the user wants it to mean. Asman's use seems straightforward: working together to achieve heightened results. This collection is divided into four categories representing the marketplace, the workplace, the economic environment, and global enterprise. Each of the columns has been reviewed by Asman and its original author and updated or revised as necessary. For those in business, large or small, this is a versatile anthology. No index. --David Rouse

Library Journal Review

This book contains selections from the regular column ``Manager's Journal,'' which appeared in The Wall Street Journal in the 1980s. Each article is updated for timeliness if necessary. The articles have been chosen to emphasize the concept of synergy as the route to managerial success. Articles are grouped into four sections: synergy in the marketplace; synergy with employees; synergy with the economic environment; and synergy in the global market. The book is a valuable resource for managers and scholars alike. Highly recommended for all business collections.-- Jane M. Kathman, Coll. of St. Benedict, St. Joseph, Minn. (c) Copyright 2010.
