Review

Rated Amazon's #1 Best Business Book of the Year So Far!

I've seen so many people thrust into management in high-growth companies with so little guidance. From now on, I will hand them this book. Its practical wisdom is immediately useful for the newly minted manager--and us old ones.
--Ev Williams, CEO of Medium and co-founder of Twitter

"Julie Zhuo had to learn to be a manager fast, as her role kept expanding in the hyper-growth environment of a successful Silicon Valley start-up. In The Making of a Manager, she shares what she learned--often, the hard way. She combines cutting-edge analysis of how organizations work with engaging and accessible examples of how theory plays out in real life, with stories of what she did right and wrong."
--Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

"I wish I'd had this book when I started managing a team at Instagram. Julie covers the full range of becoming a manager, from your first meetings with your team to accomplishing huge goals together."
--Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram

Every business book I read as a consultant and later a CEO was written by a man. Julie brings an entirely fresh perspective on leadership as a brilliant hacker, first-generation American, and young mother. This book is everything Silicon Valley appreciates in Julie: humble, inspiring, and whip-smart.
--Leila Janah, CEO and founder of Samasource and LXMI and author of Give Work

At startups, individuals asked to manage are rarely set-up for success. Julie Zhuo gives new managers the tools they need to help their people and company win.
--Sam Altman, president of Y Combinator and co-chairman of OpenAI

Are you a new manager? Are you a little scared? Fear not. Julie Zhuo is here to help. She took on a manager position at one of the biggest start-ups of our generation before she felt quite ready, but she grew into the job. And now she's here to guide you as you grow into the job. This book will get you on the right track and keep you there."
--Daniel H. Pink, author of When and Drive

As an entrepreneur and CEO, I've read all of the business books, but this is one I'll be turning to again and again as a reference for how to help my team thrive. It's a leadership manifesto for a startup, global mega-company, or anything in between."
--Brit Morin, founder and CEO of Brit + Co

Julie is like that friend giving you some much-needed tips over coffee--her style cuts through industry jargon and gets at the heart of how to lead with confidence and help your team do their best work.
--Nir Eyal, author of Hooked

The Making of a Manager is an excellent, approachable and comprehensive guide for those making the transition into management. This is something we'd give out to new managers at Slack and it could very well set a new standard for new managers.
--Stewart Butterfield, CEO and co-founder of Slack

Julie does an incredible job simplifying the role of a manager. She pulls you in with all the awkward, funny and tough moments of being a first time manager, and then takes you on an engaging journey. She sets forth a crystal clear playbook of how to drive impact and get the most out of your teams. If you're a first time manager, you'll learn how to hit the ground running, and experienced managers will level-up their game!
--Logan Green, CEO and co-founder of Lyft
