2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and Hard going
I must say that I do not normally write reviews on all books that I read, but I thought I must alert people about this particular book. No doubt, this book is written thoroughly and in depth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and Hard going, 18 May 2008

I must say that I do not normally write reviews on all books that I read, but I thought I must alert people about this particular book. No doubt, this book is written thoroughly and in depth. It describes various relevant theories of leadership with a lot of so called empirical research experiments and findings. Many of them are no relevance to MBA studies. Only the plus point is that it includes practical guidelines on different theories, which are relevant and useful. However, the style is so boring, too descriptive and hard-going. In fact, this is the hardest text book that I ever read during my MBA studies. I would suggest Peter Northouse's Leadership Theory and Practice, 4th edition as an alternative book as it is better written and in sufficient depth for MBA level studies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Startingpoint for a researcher, 16 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Leadership in Organizations:Global Edition (Paperback)
This book is no page-turner. It is the most difficult book to read that I have ever read. It is probably a good startingpoint if you want to research leadership. However, if you want to learn about leadership I would find another book.
