Yukl's book does not make for easy reading nor is it a 'basic' book (for that, you're better off with Northouse's Leadership: Theory and Practice) and you would probably enjoy the book (and gain more) if you progress to it from a fundamental-level book.
The introductory chapter (The Nature of Leadership) is an excellent primer on the concept of managerial leadership; the 'types' of theories that deal with leadership; and the difference between management and leadership.Read more ›
If I had to describe the textbook in one word it would be: clinical
It covers the material, but by the time you are finished with a chapter, you breathe a sigh of relieve.
At any rate, Yukl provides a good overview of the basic theories of leadership, with a focus on what he calls the "managerial leadership" that takes place within organizations (as opposed to, say, leadership of a Little League team or a project for a social club). The book includes quite a few case studies and also does a good job of summarizing highlights at the end of each chapter.
Given its price and the fact that there are other, equally good or better options available, I don't plan to use this book for the leadership course I expect to teach this fall. Tuition and related expenses have already stretched my students to the breaking point, especially in this slow economy. I can't justify asking my students to spend over $100. for a single text that is, at best, merely adequate for our needs.
