This is a well-written and researched book which explores the concept and traditional view of leadership from a fresh angle. The arguments are presented clearly and effectively, using a wide spectrum of knowledge and research from various sources, as well as the author’s own experience. I particularly enjoyed part 2, which focused on how Man lived and cooperated before the birth of modern society. This is a very useful and easily readable book (i.e. without complex terminology and mumbo-jumbo) t ...more

This book is amazingly insightful. I have read dozens of books on leadership, but I don't think I have ever read one that approaches leadership from the "why to people follow the leader?" angle. The book seems to be well researched, well written, and it makes you think deeply about leadership. I would recommend that everyone who perceives themselves as a an effective leader should read this book.
