Synchronicity is a wonderful thing indeed. I literally had this little book fall off of a shelf on my foot while searching for a reference book for a seminar that I was giving. Not letting a wink from the cosmos ho un-heeded, I tossed the book on my bedside table for a quick read before bed. It was one of many that kept me company during my dance with insomnia. Sometimes I lead, sometimes "she" does.

This is a nice little collection of quotes. I have seen better and I have seen much worse. As a p

I find it very powerful to have just a single sentence on a page for reflection. Not all are great, but it's an interesting exercise to simply read the statements without commentary.. I found it very helpful to read leadership concepts from a wide variety of authors and personality types from several different millennia.
Not for everyone. Probably wouldn't purchase but checked out a digital copy from the library.

This is a book of wisdom lived, learned and spoken from the hearts of world renown leaders. Among the pages there is nothing new but rather there is the echo of wisdom whispered from across the ages. The messages are inspiring, encouraging and challenging and serves to remind us of what we already know. This is worthy of a second read.

A book of merely quotes on leadership divided into five sections\categories to explain leadership principles. I probably like it more if it contains how-to-get-there explanation, a brief about the principles, or a story behind it.

Odd little piece (can't bring myself to call it a book really). Frankly, I'd be embarrassed say I wrote a book and sought publication for this. Following the 1 page introduction comes 100 quotes on 5 traits: intelligence, trustworthiness, humaneness, courage, and discipline.

read as an adobe pdf e-book from OverDrive content reserve, checked out online from the library--free 21 day loan. Awesome. Structured like Sun Tzu's "the Art of War." Short, easy read of quotes from famous leaders.

Interesting, but i feel there are some better quotes out there. Though I have to admit, i do not envy the person choosing such a list

"Some may ask where I get the authority to compile such a work, and attach such lofty claims to it. I have no advanced business degrees myself, but I have labored in an assortment of metaphorical vineyards over the course of the past four decades, from entry level to senior management positions, in government and in the private sector, and I have paid attention to the commonalities and repetitive ...more
