The book was just okay. No crazy new ideas and nothing fully in-depth. If looking for a good starter book to get you thinking about furthering your leadership skills this could be it. Or at least I thought so until one of the later chapters that says something along the lines of even women have great ideas. Then I checked out, unimpressed by this dialogue.

I really enjoyed this book. Not only does this book help with involving your employees and improving morale but it teaches delegation skills. The layout of the book makes it an easy read. I won this book on a goodreads giveaway. Thank you!

This is a Goodreads win. It is a very helpful book about having good leadership skills. Good leaders find good workers and delegate things to them which is good for the boss and the employee.
