More a memoir than a blueprint.

I stopped halfway through the audible version of this disjointed walk through Mr. Hobbs’ Memory Lane. I figured halfway through and there’s no blueprint, there’s probably not going to be one.
The book starts off great with the introduction in which Mr. Hobbs gives us the five principles of transformational leadership. I can’t remember what they are because they are not addressed again in the first half of the book.
Instead you listen/read while Hobbs nostalgically reminisces about his career with sage advice like “be a good communicator.”
I’m sure Mr Hobbs is a great leader, but this book doesn’t reflect that other than it features Hobbs quoting letters he had his former employees write affirming the fact that indeed, Hobbs is a great leader. But the content of the book is just not there.
I did pick up a couple of ideas and a few reminders, but this was definitely not a blueprint.
