Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Like most books about leadership, this one improves when the author finishes up with generalities and gets down to specifics. Whether it fulfills its ``promise'' ``to double your business leadership effectiveness on any measure you choose'' is debatable; still there are pickings in the book for the would-be leader of a kind not to be found in the many other treatises on the subject. Believing that leadership is a ``mindset and a pattern of behaviors'' that can be learned and taught, Koestenbaum presents and illustrates the meaning of his ``Leadership Diamond.'' This consists of ``four strategies for greatness'': vision thinking big and new, reality having no illusions, ethics providing service, and courage acting with sustained initiative. The ``greatness'' theme becomes a bit tedious, but there are many compensations. For management collections.--A.J. Anderson, Graduate Sch. of Lib. & Information Science, Simmons Coll., Boston
