Love this book

Terry was writing about leadership before it became a fad, and I believe, his book contains some fundamental ideas about leaders and leadership that are crucially important. This book is not a typical skim-it business book. It is not a personality- or trait- based leadership book. It does not frame leadership as a quick fix. Thus, I think the book requires some concentration and thought to appreciate. I believe this is a book for those who believe that leadership should mean more than getting others to follow. It addresses what good and ethical leaders need to do - and, his sub-title zeroes in on it -- that takes real courage, not just charisma. I like this book because it sets out a values-based approach to leadership.

Takes us from past perspectives to leadership in action.

Terry's book is an excellent summary of the traditional ideas about leadership combined with a new call for "authenticity." "Authentic Leadership" is a solid book for all interested in leadership and leadership development--scholars, students and practitioners. Thumbs up!
