I've had a passion for leadership studies for several years now, and I was excited to get my hands on another book. While he brings a lot to the table for looking at leadership, I didn't see anything new that hadn't been said by others before him. However, I think my biggest problem with the book was how he gave examples. Every few sentences, he was introducing someone new and explaining that s/he exemplified whatever characteristic was being talked about at the time. He never dove into the stories of his examples; he never went above a surface-level explanation of the person and the characteristic. In addition, most of the times that he named people, he linked them to himself as often as he could. I assume that he was doing that to show his relationship with them, but it came across to me like he was name-dropping though the entire book. I wish that he would have picked two or three people who exemplified his characteristics and showed real life stories where they happened. This would have allowed us a deeper understanding of the people and the characteristic. Not to mention, it would have eliminated most of the confusion that occurred whenever he introduced a new example (I.e. every new paragraph).

Overall, the book would probably be good if you are just beginning your quest into leadership development, however, if you've studied it before, I wouldn't waste my time on it.
