bookshelves: leadership, my-favorites
Read from March 01 to April 20, 2010 — I own a copy

This should be required reading in school. It's one of the best leadership books I have ever written. Why? Because it describes (compares) being a leader like being a king. He explains that it's easier for a king to live in the land he rules. It's also easier to send relatives to rule in your place instead of an elected leader.

I can see why the mob reads this --keep your friends close and your enemies closer. This book explains why.

Book was like $8 in paperback and worth every penny.
A true classic that still holds true today.
