From Publishers Weekly
Bryant, deputy national editor of the New York Times and writer of the "Corner Office" feature in the paper's Sunday Business section, offers compelling advice for the aspiring executive. With interviews with more than 75 CEOs and other top executives at companies of all sizes, he compiles insights on such questions as what does it take to lead an organization? what are the keys to achieving the highest levels of success? Business luminaries like the CEO of Disney, the COO of Qwest Communications, the CEO of Continental Airlines, a vice chairman at Wal-Mart, and the founder of Zappos speak thoughtfully about team creation, keeping the mission on target, management, employee relationships, the importance of feedback, and the creation of an efficient corporate culture. The conversational format makes these valuable lessons easy to comprehend and digest, and readers are left with a new understanding of leadership—why it's important, how these experts have worked to attain it, and how they can do the same.

Top customer reviews
Give me a good leader and I will follow them and support them all the way and whatever it takes. Unfortunately our world is filled with CEOs who do the empty talking but provide no leadership whatsoever.
We also need to look carefully at our own lives. Am I a leader in my own home? Am I a leader in my church. Am I a leader in my community? Do I help and enable others to be leaders and become a good follower to a good leader. You might want to reflect on some of these things while reading the book.
Adam Bryant thinks he is providing insights by laying out a structure and cherry picking quotes from way too many interviews, but it is just tasteless. Moreover I think few of the CEO's should not even feature in the list for how they have led their organizations.
The kindle version is very reasonably prices and if you like a light read then take a shot at this book, but don't go with too much expectation.
