The Alliance is one of the most extraordinary books I've ever come across in my 28 years of experience as an executive search consultant and global expert on talent and leadership. It couldn't be more timely, and I have no doubt that it will have an extraordinary impact in the years to come. An absolute must for professionals and leaders.

The book is truly outstanding because it presents a war-tested method for helping individuals and organizations advance through a neat process of building effective transformational alliances between employer and employee, in clearly defined tours of duty.

The repetitive and successful experience of the authors practicing what they preach, as well as the many individual and organizational examples, make it at the same time credible, engaging, and practical.

Great book. Reid and crew (Casnocha and Yeh) have written an excellent "how to" on managing large organizations. People are no longer lifers at companies, like in the days of Bell Labs, and instead of pretending that's the ideal way for big companies to retain talent, the authors write about the realities of managing great people. A corporation is by definition a temporary alliance of numerous people (investors, employees, consultants), and it's refreshing to read a book that is based on that definition. One of the book's key mantras is that companies are teams, not families.
I read a blog post by Reid Hoffman with the introduction of the ideas in this book, and thought the post offered a really insightful way to think about career management in the coming years. So when it alluded to more detail in this book, I was looking forward to hearing more detail about it.

The ideas are expounded upon a bit more in this book, but I think they stayed too high level to be that much more valuable than the blog. The other issue I had was that I thought the writing plugged LinkedIn too much. 'LinkedIn' seems to appear on almost every other page, and this got really annoying about a third of the way through the book.

Though it is not very long, you may have a better experience not reading every word and just skimming through each chapter. Overall, more disappointed than not.
