Read in August, 2001

This is an excellent book on leadership. Henri Nouwen, who had many years as a priest, teacher, and counselor, as well as teaching at Notre Dame, Yale and Harvard left all of this behind to work at L'Arche Daybreak Community, which serves the mentally handicapped. It was through working with people who knew nothing of his academic accomplishments that he learned what it really meant to lead people through loving and serving them and laying down one's pride.
