The Three Signs of a Miserable Job: A Management Fable About Helping Employees Find Fulfillment in Their Work by Patrick Lencioni
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book is part narrative, part rhetoric. Lencioni uses fiction to teach his three-part prescription for fulfilling work. It is primarily written to managers and certainly provokes good thought on the subject of managing people. As far as storytelling goes, it is decent. He uses dialogue to do his exposition, which makes the dialogue a little heavy and unrealistic. Overall, I think the three signs is a little simplistic, but it does make you think about the personal dynamic in managing people. I recommend it as good seed for thought.
