Reviews

"Whenever Stanley McChrystal talks, I take notes. I am so drawn to his ability to cut through pop culture theories about leadership to get to the core of what actually makes a leader. Leaders takes us deeper than most other leadership books into the true and often messy mechanics of leadership. Anyone who considers themselves a student of leadership must read this book." -- Simon Sinek, Optimist and author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last

"Leaders reexamines old notions of leadership--especially the outdated view that history is shaped by great men going it alone. General McChrystal shows us that leadership can take many forms, leaders often have different strengths, and great leaders can come from anywhere. -- Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org

"Leaders is a superb, thought-provoking challenge to conventional understanding of the nature of leadership. An enlightening, entertaining must-read about why we revere so many leaders who are often deeply flawed and even unsuccessful, and the lessons for thinking about and teaching leadership in the future." -- Robert M. Gates, former U.S. Secretary of Defense "At a time when Americans yearn for leaders we can admire and respect, this book shows what qualities are truly important. It will help you think differently about both leadership and our history." -- Walter Isaacson, professor of history at Tulane, author of Steve Jobs "Leaders is a must-read for all leaders--whether they're just beginning their careers, or whether they're already leading an entire organization." --Ken Langone, author of I Love Capitalism
