The 59-Second Employee has a bit of good-spirited humor, especially if you've read The One Minute Manager, and makes a number of valid points. Thus, most of us are both employees and managers at some level. To be a good manager, give your folks clear, concise direction and quickly communicate when they're on task or not. That's what The One Minute Manager posits. True, the faked anecdotal approach presented in the OMM is idealized and hokey but the overall idea is valid

AndrÉ and Ward have committed the folly of taking The One Minute Manager seriously. How to survive, uncompromised? One-minute techniques won't work-the managers are wise to them. He can't be perfect-he's ""too human,"" mistakes are inevitable. As a send-up, the book isn't as funny (or brash) as the original-itself a parody, unconscious or not, of behavior mod management. As a counterthrust, it's feeble: a mere echo, unwitting or not, of the employee-survival guides that advocate ""managing up"" (like George de Mare's 101 Ways to Protect Your Job, below).

I found out about this after reading negative reviews of The One Minute Manager and am glad I picked it up.

The 59-Second Employee has a bit of good-spirited humor, especially if you've read The One Minute Manager, and makes a number of valid points. Ultimately, every person in any organization answers to someone. Thus, most of us are both employees and managers at some level.

To be a good manager, give your folks clear, concise direction and quickly communicate when they're on task or not. That's what The One Minute Manager posits. True, the faked anecdotal approach presented in the OMM is idealized and hokey but the overall idea is valid.

The 59-Second Employee puts forth that no manager, regardless of style, is going to see and know everything. There are many additional details to consider. They'll have their agenda and you'll have your own. Do good things for your organization while keeping yourself in mind. You should be goal setting and seeking feedback and managing yourself, your tasks and your own career. The 59-Second Employee is a template for accomplishing this.

I don't find these books at odds. They present an approach for the manager and managed, respectively. Both are valuable depending what side of the desk you happen to be on and most people will find themselves on both sides at some point in their careers.

I bought my first copy of this when the original "One Minute Manager" came out, which was almost 40 years ago. It was very funny then. It seems rather dated now. However, since "One Minute Manager" is making the rounds again (and my original hardcover copy disappeared ages ago), I ordered out a copy of this reprint. The "youngsters" are finding it funny!

My supervisor was always putting management books on her desk to impress us. When she displayed "The One Minute Manager" I displayed this book. Message received without a word and the humor raised morale in the office. Also helpful when read. LOL!

Just as I remembered it. A perfect rebuttal for the one-minute (i.e., superficial) manager.

This book was an easy and quick read. However, written mostly in generalities. For me, the book offered little in the way of applicable advice. Potential buyers should realize this book was written around 1984.

Is your manager always right? Do you frequently need a scolding for your foolish work behavior? If not, then you NEED this book!
I was afraid this gem was no longer available - I am so glad that it's still around! Because as long as people are still reading and recommending "The One-Minute Manager", then "The 59-Second Employee" is the best antidote.
Think about your job and the skills you've learned over all the years you've been employed. If you saw a book that purported to teach those skills in a few One-Minute rules, you'd know it was silly. But somehow some managers believe that managing other people is as simple as that! You need to protect yourself from any manager who handles you this way.
This book tells you how to manage up - how to use your knowledge and skills to help your manager help your team and help you.
If you are managed by someone else, you need this book. If you manage others, then PLEASE read this book! You owe it to the people you depend on.

The one minute manager is a really dumb book. If you ever work for one of these pointy headed dudes who use it as their management bible, you need help. The "59 second employee" will help you out. While the best thing may be to change jobs, i.e. hire yourself a new manager, sometimes that isn't an option. As the 59 second employee you can train a one minute manager to stop doing one minute solutions to complex problems. Its harder work than doing your job, but possible. Thanks to the fact you read this book and are at least one second ahead of them.
Do you have one of those One Minute Managers? Don't despair and don't get so mad that you end up telling your boss exactly what you think of the One Minute style. Instead take a deep breath, relax and find yourself a copy of the 59 Second Employee. It tells you everything you need to know in order to keep your cool until your manager goes on to something else.
