    The 'Owner's Manual' for the 21st Century Leader

    If you're tired of 'flavor-of-the-month' airport books on leadership, here's the full-course gourmet meal! Marshall and Molly Sashkin present a dynamic approach to leadership that's firmly grounded in theory, not fashion. You'll understand the history of leadership theory -- the false trails, the myths, and the ground-breaking discoveries -- and come away with ideas that you can apply in the workplace, the classroom, the community setting -- anywhere there's a call for leadership that matters. The Sashkins have an eminently readable style that keeps you turning the pages and the new information flowing. I've shared this book with people in leadership roles who claim an aversion to 'all that intellectual stuff.' Each one raved about this book's down-to-earth style and practical presentation. They appreciated a leadership model that helps them learn not only how to lead well but why the method works. Authoritative, enjoyable -- no more 'leadership-lite'!
