The book is very readable! The exercises are practical ones. I think that the authors have done a great job of summarizing material where relevant as well as showing clear relationships."
"The main strength of the text (and the one that continues to attract me to the text) is its synthesis of leadership theory, application, and skill development. This is, in my view, real life."
"The end-of-chapter materials are a great strength of the text. I have used these for in class activities, individual assignments, group discussions, and as fodder for further individual research with student projects."
