Publisher's Summary

This reissue includes a new introduction by the author.


What the Critics Say

"The authors differentiate visionaries - leaders who create new stories, such as Gandhi and Jean Monnet, architect of a unified Europe - from such innovative leaders as Margaret Thatcher, who identify a theme latent in the population but neglected over the years and give it a new twist. Other leaders on whom they focus are George Marshall, Margaret Mead, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Pope John XXIII, former General Motors president Alfred P. Sloan Jr. and educator Robert Hutchins. This study will repay the close attention of aspiring leaders in many fields." (Publishers Weekly)

More like a PhD dissertation

The Author uses I way too much, And as a leader presenting information to his followers goes against what he has learned about the idea of using stories. You can do a lot better to learn about leadership by reading other books than this one.
