          Not What I Thought It Was
          The book could have had more leadership principles. The book was not worth the money spent. I would not recommend it.

            Very Good
            I really liked the information. Our company seems not alive but not dead. I am trying to find good stuff to infuse into a lifeless form. It will take time but will be worth it.

              The Essence of Leadership
              The Essence of Leadership has been a wonderful resource and guide for sharing leadership principals with the business group I belong to. Few of us are born leaders but this book shines a light on the path to being a good leader.
