Review:

"The Northouse text offers students and faculty an appropriate text for a Leadership survey course. Students will greatly benefit from the text’s ability to apply the concepts of leadership to their individual lives." (Jane Murtaugh)

"The interactive activities bring the book to life. The clear, consistent structure facilitates navigation and supports learning." (Peter Hammond)
