Positive, practical, and timeless Jul 9, 2009
I ordered "On Leadership" after finding references to John W. Gardner in two current business books I was reading, but without knowing anything about his background and experience.
What a pleasant surprise and a refreshing and uplifting read!
This book provides practical and titmeless lessons on leadership that are lacking in many of the more widely-read tomes of today. Mr. Gardner's years of experience -- and pragmatic yet postive outlook -- provide rare insights on the topics of leadership, power, community, and human potential.
Much wisdom to be mined here. Strongly recommended for those who are seeking hope for the future.
