Bennis here deplores what he considers a dearth of leadership in the world. "Although he provides solid, practical guidance on how to fill this vacuum, his philosophically and psychologically rich volume seeks primarily to define leadership--which, in his view, requires self-knowledge and clear personal goals," reported PW.
