I read Miles Smith's books because I wanted to use him as a consultant for some projects that I need marketed. Both Why Leadership Sucks and Why Leadership Sucks Volume 2 age me insights into his character and methods that became clear when we started working together. His knowledge and advice have been invaluable, even though he doesn't typically work in my field (entertainment). Good leadership skills are good all around, and he understands better than most. What's more, he practices what he preaches (or teaches), and it has been to my benefit.
He really seems to understand, and clearly explain what is missing from virtually every level of management in virtually every field of business, education, and government, and if everyone implemented his suggestions we wouldn't have such a fractured society. We'd have true leaders, people worth following, and less bosses, people who tell you where to go.
