From the Publisher"...the findings reported in this book will help identify the best institution-leader match on the basis of a clear understanding of the availability of three leader types - charismatic, ideological, and pragmatic - and the organizational and environmental conditions in which each type of leader thrives."
"Providing stimulating information, this book will appeal to those interested in leadership development in general and those interested in the particular institutions studied. An appendix lists the biographies used in the content analysis. Recommended."
“The volume is extremely thorough. The authors present reasons to study ‘outstanding leadership’ and suggest a number of reasons why traditional leadership research has shied away from studying extreme cases of historical leadership. This apparent gap in the literature is one in which the current volume stands to make a measurable contribution in addressing. The book fills an important niche and is likely to generate quite a bit of interest from the leadership research community.”

“Mumford's book contributes significantly to the literature by articulating in fine conceptual manner the distinctions among different forms of outstanding leadership and providing a framework for thinking about and researching these different pathways.”
