Editorial Reviews


"On Leadership is immensely readable. It will provide a welcome resource for those wanting to tell others stories about leadership and for those who want to relate their own experience to the collected wisdom of many of today's brightest business leaders."
—Paul Walsh Management Today

"He takes us on a breakneck tour of the hot topics of business in 2007…the contributors of the book are impressive and interesting, and the book barrels along at such a pace, with such enthusiasm, that we are breathlessly carried along…On Leadership is a profoundly hopeful read – informed by the almost palpable joy Leighton feels in inspiring and leading others."
World Business

"Leighton has chosen to consult an impressive selection of friends and colleagues about the subject, and chuck in his own thoughts in a jaunty narrative. His cast is first rate, and his access to A-list business leaders striking…for a selection of conventional wisdom on business leadership, and a sense of what is being discussed in the first-class lounges of the world’s airports, you could do no better than to read this book."
Financial Times

"The best management book I’ve read in a long while."
—Chris Blackhurst, City Editor Evening Standard

"There's only one Allan Leighton."
The Times

"... the best connected man in the business world."
