Easy to ready book and enjoyed reading it. I have read many leadership books over the years but this one caught my attention with its focus on children and nurturing leadership skills from a young age. Some good examples throughout that are easy to digest.
I would recommend this book for those who want to understand what leadership is all about in an easy to follow format with examples to bring to life and explain.
