Rather than subscribe to a methodical formula for leadership success, Masters of Change approaches effective management skills from the context of history, applying the power of models to instruct the reader. Boast calls Masters a "who to," not a "how to"—who to learn from and emulate. It unveils the abiding characteristics of great leaders—such as Churchill, Frederick the Great, Elizabeth the First, Napoleon, and Confucius—who survived and thrived in the midst of unpredictable change, providing insights into the ever-shifting challenges of an ambiguous world.
