"I wish I'd had this guide when I was starting out as a manager 15 years ago. It would have saved a lot of painful embarrassment, temporarily mismanaged catalogs, and lost revenue opportunities. I would even go so far as to say, this guide essentially reneges the need to take make business courses at university. I tried those once, and I can assure you everything you need to know - that can be taught - is in this guide. The rest is just experience."
