Editorial Reviews

Review

"Each of this year's best business books on talent and leadership is distinguished by startlingly specific diagnoses and descriptions of the roots of our leadership crisis. In the best among them, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, professor of business psychology at University College London and Columbia University, persuasively argues that today's "epidemic of bad leadership" is caused by a surplus of incompetent men whose flaws perversely enable them to rise to the top." -- strategy+business magazine

Named a Financial Times Business Book of the Month

Named one of "14 business books everyone will be reading in 2019" -- Business Insider

Advance Praise for Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders? (And How to Fix It):

Cindy Gallop, founder and CEO, IfWeRanTheWorld--
"The single most important book on leadership of our time. This insightful, innovative, original perspective is an absolute must-read for anyone who wants to identify the best leaders for their business and to be the best leaders they can be themselves--men and women alike. This book is now going to be my go-to gift for everyone I know, in business and in life."

Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, bestselling author, Seven Steps to Leading a Gender-Balanced Business--
"This wonderful book illustrates how gender balance is a lever for higher business performance. A delightfully honest manifesto to transform traditional, underperforming, overconfident male standards of leadership into something that actually delivers, inspires, and engages. Brilliant and timely."

Barbara Kellerman, James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School--
"As the title--Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?--suggests, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic has written a lively and provocative book. For anyone with an interest in leadership, and in gender differences as they might particularly pertain, the issues he raises and the conclusions he reaches will provide good grist for their collective mill.”

About the Author

Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic is the Chief Talent Scientist at ManpowerGroup, a professor of business psychology at University College London and at Columbia University, and an associate at Harvard's Entrepreneurial Finance Lab.
