A few weeks ago I received Leadership Test: Will You Pass? (amazon affiliate link) by Timothy R. Clark, Ph.D. to review
The book is a small one (~99 pages in total) but packed with some interesting content. Clark uses a business fable to describe leadership and what makes up a good leader.
I’m a HUGE fan of stories and storytelling as a means to convey knowledge and I love these types of books. Obviously other folks enjoy these types of books as well (think Patrick Lencioni and his wonderful books).
The story in this book is an excellent one. It’s well written and the plot-line is pretty good and keeps you turning the pages. While the story is good, the lessons contained with the book are even better. After reading the book, I didn’t feel as though I’d read a business book about leadership…I felt like I read an interesting story about someone learning to lead.
I’d recommend this book to everyone with any interest in leadership….and I’m not just saying that because I was sent this as a review from the author. It’s a great little book.
