This was a weirdly intriguing book, with an original (at least to me) premise that in order to lead during disorganized and unwieldy times you need to have some mental illness. The idea is that if you have some mental illness, whether it is depression or something else, that you can handle the unknown and the rocky ups and downs of problematic times better than someone who is mentally balanced. Several examples are used of leaders who dealt with specific and in some cases tragic events are documented as case studies along with examples of leaders who couldn't handle the times that engulfed them.
I am not sure I bought the idea, but I did like the book.
