Format: Kindle Edition
As scholars and leadership theorists continue to seek solid leadership models, this is the best attempt in recent years. It is a study of 4 iconic leaders who have transformed their nations by projecting their vision and convictions, forever shaping their history. There are hardly any new theories in the book but the fresh insights discussed make it a must-read book for any student of political leadership, or leadership in general.
