Praise for Drucker on Leadership
"Bill Cohen's Drucker on Leadership is the best collection of Peter Drucker's unique insights, deep wisdom, and practical advice I have ever read. Cohen channels Drucker as only a three-decades-long colleague and student can. You will find the lessons highly accessible, immensely enjoyable, and wonderfully fresh."
Jim Kouzes, coauthor, The Leadership Challenge
"Cohen has written with clarity and authority about the major challenges facing leaders today. And Cohen, like Drucker, emphasizes responsibility and integrity in leadership, qualities so desperately needed today. I strongly recommend this book to you."
