    AN INTRIGUING 'HOW-TO' OF LEADERSHIP COMMUNICATIONS

    Baldoni's 'Great Communication Secrets Of Great Leaders' is a well-researched and highly readable 'how-to' of leadership communications. This author knows his material, and presents it through the interesting device of linking principles to some of the world's leading communicators. It was refreshing to read a business-centered book that focus specifically on the communication aspects of leadership, which Baldoni obviously understands quite well. As a former professional actor, I also enjoyed how the author links dynamic presentations to effective performance. This book is well worth the modest cover price. A definite 'buy!'
