Grant injects his passion into the topic. His "squirrels" are relevant and make this book feel like his is talking directly to you. I think most people forget they are sales people in their jobs and lives. Great book, glad it is in my library.

Leadership training can be inconsistent in the best of times, and in tough economic times it’s often one of the first things that even the most progressive companies cut back. Nor can you depend on finding that mentor you’ve been hoping for. So now more than ever, if you’re going to advance your career you need to lift yourself up by your bootstraps. But not entirely: Steve Arneson is here to give you a boost.

What did you love best about Bootstrap Leadership?

This book was referenced in a leadership seminar provided by my company. My goal is to be a better leader and move up the ladder in my company. This book had some great insight as to things to do to with your peers and direct reports that I will certainly implement immediately in my current position.

I only wish more of the upper middle and senior management in our company would read/listen to a book like this. We have a huge gap in leadership on certain levels and the littlest thing like communication can bridge those gaps and make our company that much better.

This is certainly a book that needs a second or third listen to fully absorb the concepts.
