The Character of Leadership: Political Realism and&hellip von Michael Jinkins
4.0 von 5 Sternen An overlooked gem, 23. Dezember 1999
Machiavelli has been unfairly portrayed for centuries--kind of a Renaissance Dick Morris (minus the propensity for prostitutes and toe-s#&king). But the authors recognize the truth of Machiavelli's advice in the proper historical context and apply what he has to say to leadership in the modern world, especially as it relates to nonprofits.

The Abilene Paradox and Other Meditations on Manag&hellip von Jerry B. Harvey
When I first read The Abilene Paradox, I hadn't read many business/management books--I preferred fiction. In my job, I've since read dozens of business titles and I have to say few compare in content or writing style to Dr. Harvey's classic. None have the sense of humor, the appreciation of the absurd, that Harvey has. And none have the soul, compassion, and wisdom of Harvey. I hope Dr. Harvey publishes again soon.
