The last time I checked, Amazon offers 53,047 books on the some aspect of business leadership and many more will be published in months and years to come. Most experts seem to approach the subject in one of two ways: either in terms of specific attributes (vision, courage, faith, authenticity, credibility, etc.) or in terms of impact such as President Franklin Roosevelt’s leadership of the United States out of the Great Depression and then to an Allied victory in World War Two.

The topics covered in this reading really do cover host of different situations that you could be exposed to in your leadership endeavors. I particularly liked the comparisons in how business is done in different parts of the world. While my job typically doesn't deal with issues outside of the US it still a little nugget of knowledge that I now have. I highly recommend this book.
