I must be totally honest with the reader of this review to say I really wasn't that impressed with this book. However, I may not be the best person for the job of reviewing it, as I was pretty tough on it and coming in more from a professional view. With this book, it truly depends on who the authors' target audience was when it was written. I found the book to really be a primer in leadershp for an audience who doesn't know what leadership is or how it is defined, i.e. a general audience, or is ...more

I love this book--why?----this author has written over 60 books, has 19 children(14 adopted)--VP of Orlando Magic, gives hundreds of speeches a year accross the country--and yet he still has time to write this book.

I think this is one of those cases where it's not the book, it's probably me, but I've read so many stronger, concise, cohesive narratives on leadership development and skills acquirement.

Any leader worth his or her salt needs to add Pat's book to their arsenal of leadership tools. One of the best, practical and easy to apply leadership books I have read. I will be tweeting many quotes from his book. And I picked up at least a half dozen other titles that Pat recommends. If you've never read any of Pat's books, please don't miss these treasures.

One of the best books I've ever read. I have recommended and purchased this book for many people. Great examples and applications on effective leadership qualities while also including great stories on various leaders that include sports, war heroes, teachers, and presidents. Pat Williams is an expert on leadership.

One of the best books I have read in a while on leadership. I especially enjoyed the use of my personal heroes throughout.
