Reviews

This was the most helpful book I read during my entire first year as a Ph.D. student. Reading this book felt like having a good mentor nearby.
-- Professor Robert Strand
The authors explore the complex nature of leadership through different lenses, or chapters, including leadership through the leader, follower, process, performance, place, and purpose. This third edition covers new content on emerging fields such as brute capitalism, business schools, and leadership development.

The authors highlight intriguing aspects such as the romance of leadership in that followers "tend to exaggerate the role of leadership when things are going very well or very badly," and that being a good follower is not seen as a coveted position in the Western world. -- K.
