If this book were an entrée, it would mostly consist of meat and potatoes. Author Marlene Caroselli accompanies her valuable handbook on the basics of leadership with insightful quotations and anecdotes. 'Basic' is the operative word here. The book makes no pretense, for example, of delving into the theoretical side of leadership development. Nor does it prepare managers for specific business tasks that they're more likely to encounter as leaders, such as budgeting and strategic planning. Rather, this book is specifically tailored for current managers who have leadership ambitions, and for newly minted leaders who need a little expertise to seize control of their new roles. We recommend it as a solid menu option with lots of good advice for that eager-to-lead audience. The book is thoroughly crafted to achieve its purpose, though more experienced readers may find themselves asking, 'Where's the gravy?'

The book was filled with cliches and other information that most managers already know. Some of the anecdotes were amusing or instructive but not worth the time and money. Chapter 1 was a good introduction to the problems of leadership and Chaper 10 (the final chapter) was an excellent summary. Read only those two chapters and you'll have a good refresher.
