Mandela’s Way: Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage (Book Review)

[amazon-product align=”right”]0307460681[/amazon-product]

I find many books on leadership to be fairy tales: Inspiring to read, but misleading about leadership that is actually effective in our real world. Real leadership — leadership that is based on evidence and science, and thus statistically more likely be effective in practice as opposed to “feel good leadership” — is less commonly found in leadership books. Mandela’s Way, written by Richard Stengel, a respected journalist, is one of the few books about leadership lessons from the real world presented with journalistic integrity.

My rating of this book: 5/5 stars.
