drucker and meIf you’ve benefitted as much from Peter Drucker as I have, you will love Bob Buford’s new book.  Drucker & Me: What a Texas Entrepreneur Learned from the Father of Modern Management is both a fascinating read and packed with insight.  I very nearly read it in one sitting, could not put it down, and immediately decided to read parts again.  So good!

Buford’s Drucker & Me tells the story of his improbable 23 year relationship with Peter Drucker and how the hard-driving CEO of an extraordinarily successful privately owned cable television company decided to devote the second half of his life to “transform the latent energy of American Christianity into active energy.”  The author of Halftime: Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance and founder of the Leadership Network, Buford recounts this story in a way that grabs attention from the opening paragraphs and never lets go.

I especially liked the way the story of Buford’s meetings with Peter Drucker highlighted the learnings that shaped transitions in his career and sense of calling.  As much as I really enjoyed Buford’s reflections about his meetings with Peter Drucker (and if you are a Drucker fan you will love them), my copy is marked up, highlighted, and bookmarked.

Drucker & Me is a goldmine.  I’ll come back to it again and again.  I’m also confident that you’ll be hearing about what I learned!
