    Great intro to Warren Bennis

    A very good book for newcomers and fans alike. This is a collection of his best essays from the past few decades and demonstrates his remarkable foresight and wisdom. Chapters like 'The Wallenda Factor' in particular offer some wonderful insights into human behavior and some great observations about what helps a person become a better leader, regardless of the field.
