In addition to being a terrific read, Drucker & Me provides an intimate portrait of Peter Drucker as weve never seen him before: as a close friend and mentor. In this way, it reveals not only important organizational lessons but also wonderful life lessons. There are lots of Drucker books out there at this point, but this one is a true standout.

A mentor is a person who multiplies his or her impact by investing in the lives and work of others. Peter Drucker was such a mentor to Bob Buford and then Bob became a mentor to countless others. This is the heartwarming story of how two men changed each others lives and then leveraged that transformation to meet human needs and alleviate suffering through a chain reaction that is still changing our world.

Drucker & Me is absolutely outstanding. I read it once, took notes, and have returned twice again. I am delighted to be able to publicly recognize Bob and this fine work. This little book punches well above its weight! Imbued with wisdom, it is a powerful story of profound collaboration and inspired leadership, teaching us all how to lead more useful lives in service of others.

I did not know Peter Drucker personally yet have admired his work from a distance since as far as I can remember. Drucker & Me provides a perspective on this important man that few would have of any manone that even further enhances our collective view of his incredible contributions to our work here. I am grateful for Bobs effort in sharing this with all of us.

Drucker & Me is a wonderful example of what mentoring is supposed to be. The story is a warm relationship between mentor and his pupil. It is a model for anyone who is in a mentoring relationship and demonstrates how both people benefit from it. I felt I was part of the conversation. A bonus was the wisdom that Peter Drucker imparted that is valuable to all of us. It is worth rereading regularly. One of the best books I have read in recent years.

Peter Drucker rarely wrote forewords to books by other authors. Yet he did it twice for Bob Buford. That gives you an idea of the mutual respect Drucker and Buford had for each other. Their relationship comes alive in Drucker & Me, and in the process we learn much about the lives of both men that can be a beacon for our self-development.

Drucker & Me is about the power of partnership: Peter Druckers genius joined to Bob Bufords receptive, entrepreneurial energy. Until now, few people have realized this synergistic relationship literally changed the face of todays church. A book filled with great insights any spiritual leader can benefit from, this is a story that needs to be told.
