Martin Luther King, Jr. provided inspired leadership during one of the most difficult times in American history. His success as a leader can be broken down into a few basic principles: preparing to lead by listening to others; guiding a movement by encouraging creative, flexible viewpoints; inspiring action by working with people; and ensuring future success by emphasizing a hopeful, compassionate dream.
An indispensable guide to all, Martin Luther King, Jr. on Leadership shows that truly effective leaders avoid coercion by rooting their success in an understanding of others. Nelson Runger's narration moves effortlessly between King's inspiring words and Phillips' practical advice.

When Gandhi was asked what is his message to men he said: "my life is my message". The same applies to M.L. King. His story is so extraordinary that it tells itself. the message is in King's words and actions and trying to deduce rules from it is somewhat lacking.
The way this book is constructed is not as a sequential biography, but rather as separate episodes with a lot of interpretation (some good) in the middle.
I did not like the format. It is emphasized as it is an audiobook and it makes it more difficult and wearying to follow.
