New Readers

At Management Pocketbooks, we hope this blog will give you a pocketful of great ideas and introduce you to some of the best management thinking, which our books represent.  You will find a growing archive of articles about all of the topics our Pocketbooks cover, written by Mike Clayton and other Pocketbook authors.

We will also feature articles on forthcoming books and other projects, and interviews with Pocketbook authors.  We hope you enjoy this blog and look forward to your comments.  To keep in touch with this blog, do subscribe, using one of the email or RSS options.  You may also like to follow us on Twitter, @ManaPocketbooks.


We will post blogs at least once a week, on Tuesdays, and sometimes we’ll post an extra blog later in the week, when we have additional ideas or to react to topical issues or readers’ comments.  Do make a point of checking back frequently.  Alternatively, to ensure you don’t miss any posting, subscribe to our RSS feed or, if you don’t have or want to use RSS, subscribe by email.
