Reviews

"In the modern age, people who try to tell us how to be good leaders usually end up telling us only about themselves. Through new translations of three concise essays from Plutarch, Jeffrey Beneker guides us toward far better advice about the wisdom, stoicism, and selflessness found in true leaders."-Tom Nichols, author of The Death of Expertise
"These writings of Plutarch are surprisingly relevant to political life in twenty-first-century democracies and deserve to be better known. How to Be a Leader brings these works to modern readers in an accessible way."-Timothy Duff, University of Reading
