We contend that Essentials of Management, unlike much of the competition, is and always has been a text that enables the student to apply much of the information. We support our conclusions with relevant research studies wherever possible, but our intent is not to review most of the research on a given topic. A case in point is our presentation of transformational and charismatic leadership. We present some relevant research findings but also offer the students concrete suggestions for becoming more charismatic, including developing a more effective handshake. My writing has always emphasized application both in textbooks and trade books, and most of this writing has been about management, organizational behavior, human relations, leadership, and career management. Even the articles I have published in professional journals would be understandable to readers who were not specialists in the subject under investigation. For example, I have published articles about influence tactics and self-discipline. My full-time work experience as a management consultant was designed to be a prelude to a career as a college professor and author. Throughout my career I have stayed in contact with organizations and employees through consulting, talks and seminars, media contacts, and career counseling. The time you invested in reading this message is most appreciated. Sincerely,

Andrew J. DuBrin
