Like Miller's previous books, this one follows the life, learning, and influence of Debbie Bruster. Here she finds herself mentoring Blake Brown, the son of her former mentor. Rather than answer Blake's questions about leadership directly, Debbie introduces him to other leaders, each of whom shares a unique perspective on what really makes a leader successful. As Blake puts the pieces together, he discovers his problem is not one of skills but of character - that leadership is more about the heart of the leader than the head or hands.

Good content that will be valuable. Unfortunately I was looking forward to the end of the audio book only a quarter of the way in. I had a very hard time listening to the narrator. His was of halting and dropping tone drew my attention away from the message. It constantly reminded me of Don Adams playing Maxwell Smart, combined with William Shatner.
