Reader Reviews of Master Your Middle Management Universe, How to Succeed With Moga Moga Management Using 3 Easy Steps! by Mary Elston

Government Statistics Project Manager — “Even though I am not a middle manager, I found this book very interesting and informative. There are great examples that are easy to understand. I can use this information to better understand my management and improve personal employee/manager interactions. I especially liked the 20 Moga Moga Morals. They can be applied by everyone in their everyday lives.”

Technology Marketing and Program Manager — “I loved this book. It presents common sense approaches to management that are intuitively obvious, but lacking in most mid level managers. Excellent reading for anyone that is new to management or is wondering how good a manager they might be.”

Software Application Trainer — “This book is a great tool for middle managers! It is short, concise, to the point, and very Moga Moga. The worksheets are terrific. I enjoyed the Italian-ness flavor throughout. This is a quick read that has captured the true order of becoming an excellent middle manager.”

Executive Leadership Consultant and Trainer — “This book is clear and easy to understand. I suspect it will be a valuable tool for many, many managers.”

Management Trainer and Coach — “I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your Moga Moga. From my own experience as a manager and consultant in huge organizations, you can feel pretty lost and forgotten. Middle management is an audience worthy of attention.”
