9781849207393: A Very Short Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Studying Leadership (Very Short, Fairly Interesting & Cheap Books)

This bestselling pocket guide provides students with alternative ways of looking at leadership beyond prescriptive ′how to′ approaches. It shows how leadership is a relational activity and encourages students to think about leadership in fresh and innovative ways. The first edition became a favorite among students for the pithy and engaging way in which it guided them through the cacophony of competing perspectives and models. The Second Edition includes expanded discussion of hot topics like followership, gender, ethics, authenticity, and leadership and the arts, set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis. In showing students how to critically appraise and work with leadership theories, this book will not just make readers into better students of leadership, but into better leaders too.

Review:

The title is only partially correct - this book is "extremely" interesting rather than "fairly" interesting and has managed to pack more wisdom into 150 pages than almost any other leadership book available. The authors have done all students of leadership a great service with this little gem
Professor Keith Grint
Warwick Business School, University of Warwick

This has been the most helpful book I have read during my entire first year as a PhD student. Reading this book felt like having a good mentor nearby
Robert Strand
Ph.D. Fellow Copenhagen Business School

Just a quick thank you to the authors for writing their book on leadership, I bought the first edition and have just bought the second edition. I am in educational leadership and the book has been thought provoking and provided focus for my thoughts
David Bishop
Deputy Headteacher, Teaching and Learning Fakenham High School and College, Norfolk

Libraries, bookstores and the internet are full of publications on leadership. This book cuts through the rhetoric and gets to the core issues. It is user-friendly. A must read for anyone interested in leadership

Management Consultant
