    Although most Leadership books say the same things, just in different ways, this book has examples and highlights the important things for a leader or aspiring leader to remember. It's one you can reference back to when needed.

    Erudite examination of strategic leadership

    John Adair is a pivotal expert on "strategic leadership" - a term he says he introduced in the 1970s - and he has written some 50 books on the topic. Employing ancient Greek history as his touchstone, Adair presents invaluable information, sharp insights, wonderful quotes and fascinating anecdotes about the history and techniques of strategic leadership in this exceptionally literate treatise. Adair uses clear, simple sentences to get his points across, creating a blueprint to help anyone become an effective strategic leader. Unlike many authors, his efficient, authoritarian - but never hectoring - style conveys every point he makes about leadership. Just as he suggests, a good leader never draws attention to his or her leadership methods. Adair's elegant merging of form and function makes this a necessary and accessible textbook. getAbstract recommends this solid read to leaders interested in personal development, strategy and ancient history, and to those who simply love great quotes and aphorisms on leadership.
