Customer Review

on 10 August 2010
According to this book there are over 53,000 books on the topic of leadership on Amazon. This is a worthy addition to that list. The author skilfully combines academic and popular styles to build up the reader's knowledge of the subject of leadership. He touches on topics as diverse as Plato's republic, Hitler youth and "Lord of the Rings" to illustrate the differing types of leadership styles and how these have historically changed depending on the social context. There is an excellent use of compact and informative diagrams which illustrate the author's points. Whilst I might disagree with the author on some topics, such as his views on the "Great Men" style of leadership - he makes his arguments clearly and well. Apart from a minor quibbles about at times poor referencing of source material in the text, a recommended read.
