Editorial Reviews

Review

Superbosses shows the incredible impact that great managers can have, both on their employees and on entire industries.  As masters of career development, superbosses are both talent magnets and launchpads, remaining valued allies with their proteges long after their official relationships have ended.  Syd has written a true leadership guide for the Networked Age.”
Reid Hoffman, Co-founder and Chairman of LinkedIn, Co-author of The Alliance

“I couldn’t agree more with Sydney Finkelstein that innovation is part of the leadership DNA. The best bosses—superbosses—must foster a culture of innovation, encourage smart risk taking, remove obstacles, and drive change. They demand world-class performance and empower their teams to achieve it. Superbosses gives leaders a playbook to bring out the best in their people.”
Jeff Immelt, chairman and CEO, GE
 
"Superbosses is the rare business book that is chock full of new, useful, and often unexpected ideas.   After you read Finkelstein's well-crafted gem, you will never go about leading, evaluating, and developing talent in quite the same way.”
—Robert Sutton, author of Scaling Up Excellence and The No Asshole Rule

“First and foremost this is a book about leadership--how the best recruit, nurture and build teams of strong leaders. Consider it a beacon, written about  Superbosses who manage talent innovatively and achieve unrivaled success in their field--and written for those who want to excel and play at the top of their game.  Sydney Finkelstein has nailed it."
General James Amos, USMC (Ret), 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps

Superbosses is one of the most important, groundbreaking, and actionable leadership books to hit the market in years. Literally anyone who is seeking to have a positive impact on their organization and to achieve personal success as a natural consequence can apply the powerful yet straightforward concepts in the book starting immediately.  Sydney Finkelstein has done the hard work of proving, through deep research and analysis, and showing, through colorful stories and examples, that the way the best leaders succeed is by unleashing creativity, innovation, and motivation through their approaches to hiring and management. But here’s the best news – these lessons are teachable and directly applicable, whether you are a chief executive, a soccer coach, or an aspiring young professional. “
James M. Citrin, Author, The Career Playbook and Leader, CEO Practice, Spencer Stuart

"A smart leader surrounds himself with smart people. Through his book, Superbosses, Sydney shows the surprising ways leaders actually find, develop, and grow a team of curious, talented individuals."
Millard Drexler, Chairman and CEO J.Crew Group 

“Maybe you’re a decent boss. But are you a superboss? That’s the question you’ll be asking yourself after reading Sydney Finkelstein’s fascinating book. By revealing the secrets of superbosses from finance to fashion and from cooking to comic books, Finkelstein offers a smart, actionable playbook for anyone trying to become a better leader.”
Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive
 
“We have long recognised Sydney Finkelstein as one of the world’s leading management thinkers.  With Superbosses, he demonstrates why.  It is a riveting, inspiring and practical tour de force.”
Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove, founders, Thinkers50
 
“This book could make some bosses angry—and that's a good thing. Finkelstein’s examination of what actually makes a legendary leader goes against the grain of much standard management 'best practice' and offers a whole new way to think about talent.”
Kevin Roberts, executive chairman, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide

“Complete with valuable information for managers and their subordinates, this volume provides great advice for the practice of management.” 
Library Journal

Superbosses is that rare business book that does more than inform.  It’s positively hard to put down.”
—Success magazine
