Many soothsayers pontificate sonorously about leadership to anyone who will listen, but over time they gradually lose touch with their subject matter. You may at first wonder if best-selling guru Marcus Buckingham has stumbled into this very ditch after he devotes eight pages early in the book to what makes great marriages (FYI: he says it¿s always interpreting everything your spouse does in the warmest possible light, whether or not that is logical). Well, not to worry ¿ Buckingham is just warming up. An original thinker who lets his intellect roam, he brings sharp insights to the evergreen topic of leadership. Although this book is essentially creative in nature rather than intellectually rigorous, you'll come to respect the powerful perceptions it has to offer. Buckingham must navigate a perilous balance between clarity and oversimplification, and he pulls it off rather well. While we wouldn't say this is the only book you need to read to understand leadership, we highly recommend it.

I loved this book. It was an easy read, and took me less than two days to finish. Marcus Buckingham's thoughts on leadership and management were interesting, and spot-on. One of my favorite points he makes in the book is the differentiation between leadership and management. Usually, those two words have interchangeable meanings in the self-help/occupational realm, but not to Buckingham. To paraphrase Buckingham: leadership is about having a vision for employees/teammates to follow, and management is about the employees themselves. He also uses real-life examples of good leadership to illustrate his concepts. The book is easy-to-understand without being overly simplistic. It has changed my understanding and thoughts on management.
