    "Fantastic Read"

    This book applies to everyone because it addresses how to lead people from above, below, and next to you. It's a very holistic approach to managing people like your boss, your co-workers, and your underlings. Read it and you'll be more effective.

    "Leaders will want their employees to read this"

    This book has some great material within. I have read a number of books about leadership over the past couple of years, and I believe this one to have a lot of the important material from each placed into one book. In addition, this book gives good tips on how to work with other ambitious people and still succeed, as well as how to really help your superiors in a way that helps you and your organization. This book is great for anyone who wants to succeed as a professional

    "Future Leader"

    I was recommended to read this book, as I am a new leader in my company, and I was very pleased by the content. It is very informative and educational, but also intriguing. I would definitely recommend this book to fellow leaders new and existing to their growth.
