Reviews

Bennis here deplores what he considers a dearth of leadership in the world. ``Although he provides solid, practical guidance on how to fill this vacuum, his philosophically and psychologically rich volume seeks primarily to define leadership--which, in his view, requires self-knowledge and clear personal goals,'' reported PW. (Oct.)

Bennis, author of the popular Leaders: The Strategies of Taking Charge (LJ 4/1/85) and also co-author of The Unreality Industry , reviewed in this issue, p. 00.-- Ed. , has interviewed hundreds of leaders over time, and he uses 30 of them to illustrate his points. He does this by quoting them, as appropriate, in the various chapters of the book--``Understand The Basics,'' ``Operating on Instinct,'' ``Knowing Yourself,'' etc. He still sees vision as an essential ingredient for leadership, but in this work stresses how to find the vision. ``The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely--all your skills, gifts, and energies--in order to make your vision manifest.'' Recommended for all business collections.-- Michael D. Kathman, St. John's Univ., Collegeville, Minn.

On Becoming a Leader is the indispensable handbook for anyone who had become a leader. Warren Bennis maps the terrain of leadership with a rare sense of wisdom and authority.
