From a young part-timer to a corporate vice president, the journey had many good times and personal triumphs, as well as rough situations and disappointments. But Buck Jones feels he could have helped his companies and his employees be so much more successful if he had understood and practiced some of the basic leadership and management skills he learned later in his career. So he's written a book aimed at today's retail store and department managers that serves as an introduction to specific management techniques they can use in their day-to-day operations. It's called Success at Retail, One 15-Minute Break at a Time: Sixteen Questions I Wish I'd Asked as a Retail Manager
