From the Back Cover:

"This invaluable book identifies the special qualities and experiences that help good managers become great leaders. It should be required reading for every aspiring leader."

-Howard Schultz, CEO, Starbucks

"Geeks and Geezers is an insightful and absorbing culling of wisdom from remarkable leaders whose ability to create meaning out of adversity is profoundly inspiring. Read this wonderful book for its useful lessons from those already at the top, but also to get to know the emerging heroes who are shaping our future and changing the very definition of leadership."

-Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School, and best-selling author of Evolve: Succeeding in the Digital Culture of Tomorrow

"Geeks and Geezers is both Warren Bennis's most important and his most enjoyable book."

-Peter F. Drucker, Professor of Social Science and Management, Claremont Graduate University

"An inspired idea, a tantalizing title, an essential book."

-Howard Gardner, coauthor of Good Work: When Excellence and Ethics Meet

"A great book for all ages and all seasons. I was humbled by the stories and inspired by the messages that Bennis and Thomas drew from them." -Charles Handy, social philosopher and author of The Elephant and the Flea

"As a geezer, I still want to understand leadership better-not just how to lead but also how to follow the best people. This book offers fresh and useful ideas from any reader's perspective."

-George P. Shultz, Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
