There are swaths of Drucker’s encyclopedic oeuvre that no longer resonate. They reek of the hair tonic and smoky rooms of 1950s manufacturing companies. But The Essential Drucker, edited and introduced by the man himself, is still remarkably fresh. The essays, a series of incontrovertible meditations on the art of management, are shot through with humanism. Drucker was never aheadbanger and rarely a bore.
德鲁克包罗万象的著作中，有许多已经不再能引起共鸣，它们散发着上世纪50年 代制造公 司里生发水和烟雾缭绕的房间的味道。不过德鲁克本人编辑并作序的《德鲁克管理思想精要》(The Essential Drucker)，味道仍然十分清新。书中收录的文献是管理艺术进行了一系列无可辩驳的思索，贯穿着人性的光辉。德鲁克从来都不狂热，也很少枯燥无味。
