I am no accidental manager. Well, not a manager anyways. I found this book in the hands of a colleague who is on his way to becoming a manager. Later I grabbed a chance to read this book myself. It tells you about the common fallacies of new 'accidental' managers, and lists recommendations on how to behave to avoid getting into those traps. It was fun to relate many characteristics to people you typically find in the industry (I am not referring to a specific industry here - it just applies to a lot of them).

Author : Topchik Gary S. Publisher : Prentice Hall India Learning Private Limited. This book guides the first time managers in making a success of their managerial role if they are there without expecting to be or wanting to be. That is if they are promoted to the ranks of management while not being fully prepared yet or they are in there without any expectation, or even without wanting to be but have to be due to other compulsions. In all these cases one thing is certain-the challenging new role will demand certain skills never practiced by such new managers.

The Accidental Manager gives managers the skills they need to shine in their new -- accidental -- positions."
