Format: Hardcover
Avolio has done a good job in discussing how the full-range theory (transformational and transactional leadership) works in practice. The book is thought provoking and at times, funny, really funny. But, it is serious enough for a scholar to read, but not too dry to distance casual readers. As a leadership researcher I have found the book very useful and would recommend it for purchase.
