Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the book clearly outlines the kinds of programmatic steps that are used in trying to develop leaders to be more transformational, including techniques such as 360-degree feedback, personal development plans, working on vision plans and articulation of visions, etc."
The Member Connector - International Leadership Assoc.

"A new or revised book by on the world's most eminent researchers on leadership is usually the cause for celebration, and this work by Bernard Bass (writing with Ronald E. Riggio) is no exception....this is a must-read book for researchers and advanced students in leadership in general and transformational leadership in particular....a valuable contribution for any serious student on this topic."
PsycCRITIQUES

"Bernie Bass' legacy is an international tidal wave of researchers and scholars exploring transformational leadership. The study of leadership has many mothers but it was Bernie Bass who became its driving force. We are delighted to have this new edition of Transformational Leadership and to find the markedly thoughtful influence of leadership scholar and social psychologist Ron Riggio. It brings in substantial new findings, consolidates and conceptualizes previous work, and brings the work of leadership to life with real leaders in real-life situations."
James MacGregor Burns and Georgia Sorenson, University of Maryland

I can't think of a more influential author in modern leadership theory. This work and the theory that was its genesis is a remarkable convergence of well-reasoned theory and well-designed empirical research.

After this book, you will have a reasonable grasp on the concept of human leadership as it is currently studied in psychology and increasingly in business. It is the perfect companion for anyone using MLQ leadership scale.

Rented this book as research for a paper in my global leadership class because I needed to cite some pages. I really like that it is available for rental and will definitely be reading it in more detail over the holiday break.

Easy to read,good examples, theories presented in a simple and interesting way, not bad at all. Tables were confusing but overall not the worst leadership theory book I've had to read by far. It's a really short book so I thought it was a little expensive for it being just a little booklet basically. I really learned a lot from it honestly, so it was worth getting. I recommend you take the MLQ test so as you're reading you can be comparing how you scored in the different categories it discusses.

I have been a fan of leadership ideas for many. In my career myself and others have always known what works best. Bass & Riggio very carefully adds definition and supportive research behind every aspect of Full Range Leadership. It can get no better than this.
