Review:

"How rare is it to come upon a book about leaders with depth, conceptual bite and historical context" (Warren Bennis)

"Any of us who aspire to, and recognize the need for some form of leadership can only improve our performance by studying the past. John Adair's latest book is a valuable addition to the thinking that has gone into the subject ... I believe that it is a 'must read' book ... He is without doubt one of the foremost thinkers on the subject in the world" (Sir John Harvey-Jones, leading industrialist and ex-CEO of ICI)
