I have heard interviews with the author regarding this book which are interesting, but the book just seems like a compilation of random blogs, research, stories and interviews over the years. There are some good tidbits here and there, but no overarching concepts or a consistent development of ideas for true learning and understanding. He seems to hit the overall subject at cursory, disjointed and shallow way.

I took the test and thought it did a good job of identifying the essence of good and bad "boss-hood" so I bought the book. But, perhaps it is like the relationship between achievement tests and achievement. I read much about how to be an ideal boss but learned very little that didn't instill doubts. Like the reality of finance, the reality of managing is infinitely complex and riddled with game elements. There isn't anything in here that I had not already learned from raising a child-but "child" is a misspecification of what an employee is.

I think the people who could most benefit from this book are the one's who are least likely to read it, or to even understand that they need to read it. The information is ok, but a repeat of all the management books I've ever read.

Great content, poorly read!
Mr. Sutton covers all the qualities a good boss should have to make a positive impact on his/her staff. As marines learn in NCO School "accomplish the mission and take care of your people"
The major problem with the audio edition is the monotone voice of the reader, there is no excitement in his voice. These CD's can put you to sleep! I don't advise listening while you are driving your car.
