My book gave an Air Force view on Leadership and Management. Although it was written for an explicit audience, don’t let that deter you from reading it; the authors reach a good balance between general leadership theory/examples and those that are military-specific. The book’s wide range of concepts have definite application beyond that singular group. With chapters on issues such as conflict management, motivation, power and influence, and problem solving, the authors are able to address quite an extensive spread of challenges and principles. The volume of theory and examples add value to the book, but they can, at times, be overwhelming. Large parts of the book are approached more as a literary review, which proves for a dull read.
Overall, I’d say the book is a valuable collection of examples and theory. It is an efficient collaboration for leadership development.
