Naphtali Hoff has achieved the implausible: a new management book that is fresh, novel, and highly-readable. Dr. Hoff, draws on current industry trends and his own rich leadership expertise to deliver a book that has actionable insights and strategies for organizational leaders. While marketed to “the new boss,” I believe that this book is equally valuable for veteran and aspiring leaders, too. As a chief executive myself, I heartily recommend this book for new CEOs, their boards, and for anyone who wishes to gain insight into the complex arenas of executive onboarding and successful leadership. As a last note, I would suggest that “Becoming the New Boss” should be a must-read for CEO search committees. This book highlights the challenges, opportunities, and pitfalls of integrating new leaders within organizations. I believe that reading this book will help search committees gain a better tactical understanding of these realities and will lead them to make more informed hiring decisions. Kudos to Dr. Hoff on delivering a fun-to-read book of enduring value. Hershel Lutch, Executive Director, MEOR Foundation
