This book reads like a set of power point slides with a pile of filler at the front. Half the book is dedicated to the author's literature survey on his theory of leadership. There are a half-dozen Harvard Business Review articles that could better express the material in this book.

Author said, this book was not written for academic use! I can even skip the page if It seems boring and unnecessary. But while reading a million of theories I felt like to sleep for whole day long.

Jhon Adair is a very popular writer in this lleadership development branch, but somehow he couldn't cook it well.
