I ordered this book to read for my Educational Leadership class and man oh man was I surprised at how much I enjoyed it. In fact, I'm not sure if I have ever enjoyed an assigned reading so much! Bennis is an excellent writer who writes with passion and motivates you throughout the book. Not only does this book look at leaders throughout history and examine their strengths and downfalls, it simultaneously encourages the reader to look at their own character and pushes them to grow in those areas they might be lacking. Though assigned in graduate school, this book is not an academic style text but instead written as a cry for action for everyone who reads it. Whether you are already a leader or hope to be one in the future, this book is for you.

This book was okay but a challenge to keep focused. Although it had some great tips, I felt like I was going back in time and we really need to read it carefully and pull the good tips to place into today's perspective. Although I love to read, it was a challenge to stay focused on the book so when you begin reading it, stay focused and don't put it down.

Purchased this book for suggested reading in a doctorate class. It is your typical book written for people who do not have alot of time to read. Packed with great information that gives a kick to any theme papers, reports or projects. Makes you think. Obviosly, some of his comparison stories are dated, but one can easily fit current events into the examples cited. I would reccomend to anyone studying management or leadership skills.

This is one of the best books ever written on leadership. I suspect that the poor reviews come from Reagan acolytes since Bennis was willing to tell the world the emperor had no clothes back when it was first written.

If you are looking for leadership strategies and tactics, you'll appreciate this book. If you believe the world desperately needs real leadership, you'll want to own this book. However, if you think greed is good and you're more interested in getting "yours" then you shouldn't bother opening the cover.

I really enjoy reading this type of book. It was another great book I've read because it was easy to read. After you read one chapter you can't help but read another.

Usually after I finish reading a book, I put it into the box to go to the thrift stores. Once in a while, though, I toss a book into the trash because it is so bad I want to protect anyone for wasting time and money on it. This is one such book. The first chapter is reasonably worthwhile. After that the book dissipates into unfocused rambling with occasional insults to Republicans. If that's what you like, of course, this is a book for you. I'm not much a fan of unfocused rambling myself.

In reading the other reviews I see a split along political lines. Of course thats true he is a Professor. But the one big takeaway I have never forgotten from this book is the 'unconscious conspiracy'. He's talking about his time in the sixties as President of the University of Cincinnatti. With all the the distractions and upheaval from the war and the times, a leader couldn't get anything done because of what he described as the 'unconscious conspiracy'. Of we look at that theory and put it to the test today its why our so called leaders get nothing done. If there were 5 special interest groups back in the sixties there are 500 today. Without that thought, which I find so true I would have given the book a 2 or 3.
This book is full of typographical errors and cannot be read. Totally unacceptable Kindle version. I refuse to pay for this. But how to cancel the order???
