"An insightful study of Moses's leadership, combining traditional midrash with illustrations from today's leaders.... Gives us much to ponder."
Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter

"Informative and challenging.... Effective in emphasizing what constitutes outstanding leadership.... Recommended."
Congregational Libraries Today

“Cohen is a consummate teacher of midrash, rabbinic interpretation of Scripture. [He] brings our biblical ancestor alive, while teaching us what’s at stake in true leadership.”
Prof. Burton L. Visotzky, author of The Genesis of Ethics and Reading the Book: Making the Bible a Timeless Text

“Engaging…. Reframes the ideals and issues of leadership…. Draws lessons from this teacher and prophet of antiquity for all who aspire to leadership today.”
Mary C. Boys, coauthor of Christians and Jews in Dialogue: Learning in the Presence of the Other

“Masterful and thought-provoking…. Compares and contrasts the leadership problems faced by Moses and the Israelites with those of the modern-day CEO. A must read for modern-day leaders who to seek to aid in the growth and progress of an organization.”
