DescriptionThinking Like a Manager is a unique book that offers students and wildlife professionals a fresh format for considering a. complex array of themes associated with the contemporary wildlife management. The title refers to Aldo Leopold's classic essay, Thinking Like a Mountain, which promotes the integration of ecological and sociocultural processes in natural resource decisions. Thinking Like a Manager assumes the form of a fictional novel featuring six wildlife managers stranded on a remote beach. While waiting for the fog to lift, the characters draw from their experiences to discuss the changing role of the wildlife manager. The result is a highly readable and provocative account that, despite a few shortcomings, raises important issues about human dimensions of natural resource management.
