photo95-year-old Peter Drucker is one of the world's most respected thinkers. For six decades, he's helped shape many of today's great corporations and made the study of management theory a respected discipline. As a journalist, teacher, consultant, and author of more than 35 books, Drucker's expertise reaches far beyond the confines of the Fortune 500.

Born in Vienna in 1909, Drucker studied law in Germany before moving to London to escape the Nazis, and later to the United States. In 1945, his book, "Concept of the Corporation," based on a two-year study of General Motors, became an instant bestseller.

Since 1971 he has taught at Clarement Graduate University, which in 1987 named its business school after him. His new book is titled "The Daily Drucker: 366 Days of Insight and Motivation for Getting the Right Things Done."
