- In the crowded field of leadership literature this book stands out for three reasons: (1) it is briskly written and vigorously argued - it is as close to a page turner as one can find in this genre; (2) it is nicely situated in the relevant empirical literature; and (3) it pays close attention to the fact that a large percentage of modern managers are doing a poor job. It is an engaging read that also provides a candid and dependable guide to action.
- Professor Adrian Furnham, University College London
