I used this for my 473 Leadership and Decision Making class. A lot of the things in mentioned in this book are seen everyday by everyone but you don't really recognize it until you are made aware. This book will help you become aware of the leadership aspects you encounter daily. A lot of useful information, like giving you actual names you can use to describe a situation that you didn't even realize was important. Everything about our life is a studied and classified and this book just gives you another resource of knowledge about overlooked things. I would recommend that anyone read this even if you are just wanting to better yourself. It will help you recognize the negative and positive aspects of who you are and how you can change them.
I read this text as a requirement for a College Course. I found the textbook was easy to read in regards to the type to paper used (non-glossy glare), the font size, and the moderate information printed on each page was acceptable. Unlike some textbooks that have small print and too much information printed onto high glare pages, which is totally annoying to me.
The information presented and cited throughout the text was very informational, and I gained understanding of Leadership vs. Management, and types of each. I will be keeping this textbook for future reference.
I am reading this book for a graduate class and so far it is quite interesting. The author is including a lot of current information on high profile leaders and studies from psychology and other fields.
