    Great for Leaders

    I read the book Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership written by Samuel D. Rima and Gary L. McIntosh, which was a very interesting. At the beginning of the book, the read is a little slow and sort of uninteresting; but one must keep reading in order to get to the good ¿stuff¿. The book could be classified as non-fiction religion, for the fact that the book involves God. Of course the title is a give away, it is about leadership, but about the importance of how the leader¿s experiences affect his/her leadership. All leaders use their bad experiences to be successful, but some leaders take their success and bad experiences to create an unknown dark side. Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership helps leaders realize, understand, and overcome their dark side. This book is not for everyone, this book is only for Christian leaders or future Christian leaders, only for the fact that God is a big part of the book. In order to understand and apply this book, a very high maturity and vocabulary level is needed. This book is meant to help the leaders be a good leader from the inside out instead of just the outside. The book is a little long, it contains 219 pages, but I can guarantee it will not feel that long. Since it is suppose to help the leader grow in leadership, the reader should take the reading slow, in order for the reader to study the message, to be able to apply to oneself. Plus the book contains self assessments to show what type of leader the reader falls in to. Overall this book deserves two thumbs up. The authors really worked hard to put together a great piece of work that help leaders be better.
