Overview

In the face of ambiguity, uncertainty, and conflicting demands, a leader's judgment determines the fate of an entire organization. Now Noel Tichy and Warren Bennis-both experts in leadership and advisors to the top CEOs-offer a powerful guide to making tough calls when the stakes are high and the right path is far from obvious. No organization can afford to neglect this crucial discipline-and no previous book has ever brought it into such clear focus.

This "engaging and thorough" (Publishers Weekly) study comes to life through interviews with world-class leaders who have thrived or suffered because of their judgment calls, such as New York City Department of Education chancellor Joel Klein, former Procter & Gamble CEO A. G. Lafley, former Best Buy CEO Brad Anderson, and the late general Wayne Downing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

As with Big Fishand The Watermelon King, Wallace offers here a Southern novel full of whimsy and folklore. Clearly influenced by Flannery O'Connor and Eudora Welty, Wallace tells the story of Henry Walker, a magician with Jeremiah Musgrove's Chinese Circus in the 1950s South. As a boy in Albany, NY, Henry learned magic from the pasty-faced Mr. Sebastian, believing his mentor to be the devil, and lost his beloved sister as a result. Through his travels, Henry constantly loses those he cares about. As Wallace slowly reveals that the supernatural has less to do with Henry's fate than he thinks, the story grows more powerful. This captivating morality tale is told from multiple points of view well narrated by Norman Dietz, L.J. Ganser, Katherine Kellgren, T. Ryder Smith, Tom Stechschulte, and, especially, Alyssa Bresnahan, whose character's unrequited love for Henry is particularly poignant. Highly recommended for all collections.
