A must-read for everyone

Well-written, lucid, and backed by studies and examples, this is a genuine gem among leadership literatures. I felt awakened and see things differently with much more hope for the future. This should be required reading for all who aspired to make a difference in the world.

This wasn't what I expected at all. I imagined a book that was dry and rather tedious, and really nothing 'new' at all. But I was blown away by the ideas this book contained and also by how accessible and how much sense they made. This was a book that really made me think.

This is probably a good leadership textbook or psychological aspects of leadership, but most of it went over my head until we had a further discussion in class.

First half is first rate and empirically based, while the second half loses steam.
