SIDELIGHTS: Joseph A. Maciariello has collaborated on several books with his friend and colleague Peter Drucker. Drucker is well known for his effective teaching on corporate leadership styles, as found in his book The Effective Executive. In The Effective Executive in Action: A Journal for Getting the Right Things Done, Drucker and Maciariello created a workbook companion for The Effective Executive. It provides the most pertinent points from the original text, along with material from Drucker's other works, suggestions for putting his precepts into action, and questions to prompt further reflection.

The Daily Drucker: 366 Days of Insight and Motivation for Getting the Right Things Done provides readers with a year's worth of concise tips from Drucker, along with comments and explanations to reinforce the daily message. Source material is thoroughly documented and indexed, and subjects within the book can be accessed by headings that group them into categories such as leadership, business ethics, and social responsibility. The Daily Drucker is a "powerful, inspirational learning tool," according to Susan C. Awe in Library Journal.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
