Hard-hitting, Practical and Pithy Wisdom

I [usually] like it when authors read their own material because their passion for the story/topic typically comes through more clearly. Anderson's hard-hitting, practical advice is even more impacting because of his narrating. Most of the sections here are strong, but the material on building a healthy staff is exceptional. As one who's violated many of Dave's common-sense principles, I was grateful for the encouraging "I've-been-there-too" coaching tone. I've got this book on my "Read Yearly" list.

great read for leaders!

Both but why exactly what I need in at this point in my life. I was definitely favoring some people that I shouldn't be and I am ready to become a leader I need to be.
