Publisher's Description

Bob Buford tells the compelling story of an unlikely, 23-year friendship between the Austrian-born "father of modern management" who loves Japanese-art, and a wealthy Texas cable TV operator and ardent Dallas Cowboys fan. Under-the- radar they organize meetings with an elite list of leaders to revolutionize the world of non-profit organizations. In 1982 a young, ambitious East Texas entrepreneur, whose business is growing at double-digit rates, decides there must be more to life. So, oddly enough, he writes a letter to the man whose books he most treasures—Peter F. Drucker, father of modern management theory and practice. As they met over the years, Buford sees that "Drucker is to management what Shakespeare is to literature." Their relationship progresses from paid consultant to mentor and close friend. Drucker & Me tells how two men discover a mutual passion and strategy that will literally change the world. Their disappointment with corporate America leads them to embrace the non-profit sector, including one of the most important developments in the last 30 years—the mega church movement. Believing nonprofit organizations change lives, they begin work with Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and others to design a new management model for non-profits in the 20th century.

Until the sale of his company in July 1999 Bob Buford served as Chairman and CEO of Buford Television, Inc., which began with a single ABC affiliate in Tyler, Texas, and grew into a network of cable systems across the country. In 1995 Buford wrote the 750,000+-copy bestseller Halftime, a book about how to deal with the second half of our lives.
