As someone else has already commented this book has an awful and dated cover. Oh well, cover it up. I got this book at Goodwill for 50 cents, and it was a great bargain. Yes, this is one of those leadership books that focus on the business world, namely CEOs, so this is a very market oriented view of leadership. Still Debra Benton gave me some good advice for expressing myself rightly if I want to be taken seriously as a leader. Simple, concrete ideas to help convey authority. For some people things like this are second nature. For some of us, we have to work at them.
