Editorial Reviews

Review

"On Becoming a Leader is the indispensable handbook for anyone who had become a leader. Warren Bennis maps the terrain of leadership with a rare sense of wisdom and authority."
Daniel Goleman

"Only Warren Bennis could write a book on leadership that is so inspiring and insightful, captivating and wise, eloquent and revealing. His beautifully crafted stories of outstanding leaders and their fascinating paths to power are sure to launch an exciting journey of self-exploration for future leaders."―Rosabeth Moss Kanter

"Warren Bennis-master practitioner, researcher, and theoretician all in one-has managed to create a practical primer for leaders without sacrificing an iota of necessary subtlety and complexity. No topic is more important; no more able and caring person has attacked it."―Tom Peters

"Warren Bennis's pioneering work is so central in the field of leadership studies that many of us forget that he was the source of numerous foundational ideas."―Howard Gardner

"Warren Bennis's insight and his gift with words make these lessons, from some of America's most interesting leaders, compelling reading for every executive."―Charles Handy --This text refers to the paperback edition.
