   Too long
It has useful information, but could be stretched out in a lot fewer pages, but has been explained to almost 400pgs. Other books by Maxwell, Anthony Robbins and Robert Green are also recommended.

   Best leadership study I've read yet! Outstanding!!
For leaders who have been in this vocation for some time, this book serves as a refresher and perhaps as acknowledgment of the methods that leaders choose. It focuses on short-term organizational growth and health, reminds one that long-term gains are the province of the managers, while leaders continually challenge and motivate people to achieve extraordinary results. For the new leader, this is an in-depth primer, broken into chunks small enough to digest, but full of insight and inspiration. It is not a how-to book per se, but does outline a path towards better leadership and challenges to develop oneself with a purpose. I loved it! '' My copy is note-ridden, earmarked, annotated and continually referred to for anecdotes and ideas. Buy a copy for every developing leader under you and start a development plan for them all.

   The Beauty of Leadership In Action
James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner articulated the leadership challenge around ten commitments clearly : They subdivide these ten commitments into five practices : Challenging the process, inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, modeling the way, and encouraging the heart. Kouzes and Posner illustrate each of these practices with a wide variety of examples that give life to leadership. To their credit, Kouzes and Posner refrain from using jargon that makes its analysis of leadership, its rewards and pitfalls a very enjoyable read, easily accessible to a wide audience. The Leadership Challenge is ultimately a quest of self-discovery that helps its readers to better know themselves and improve their leadership skills in action.

   Packed With Knowledge!
The remarkable guide of James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner debunks the myth of the leader as a maverick, rather than a team player. It also focuses the image of the leader as a special breed. Indeed, the book's basic premise is that there are certain critical and identifiable skills that anyone can learn and adopt to become an effective leader. The authors list these skill sets and spell out the guiding principles that leaders should follow and represent to their organizations. The seminal Book is a mile wide and a mile deep. We recommend this excellent manual to all current and future leaders.
