This innovative text operates at three levels of leadership: individual, organizational, and societal.

This book is mostly mediocre and is rather boring. The author tends to digress to often, and inserts a fair amount of personal viewpoints, perhaps with the presumption that most readers are unexposed to the world of business, and the author's opinions are not always relevant to the topics being discussed. This book has good content if you're willing to dig for it and ignore the personalized author statements in the text. The sentences are wordy and tend to be run-on sentences. There are many subject-verb agreement errors in the editing. The index is the only thing that saves the reader. The book tends to jump around a lot. McGraw Hill Irwin needs to either charge more for the books, or get better editors. A very tedious read due to the above.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
