The Feiner Points of Leadership
by Michael Feiner
Review by C.S. Clarke, Ph.D.
This is a definitive book on what leadership is and how it works. The subtitle explains what it contains better than the title: "50 Basic Laws That Make People Want To Perform Better For You."
This is about the nitty-gritty exact how-to's and why-to's of leading subordinates, peers, teams and superiors within a corporate setting. It is about leading them to their best performances under all kinds of conditions. It is a accurate analysis of how people-power works and an excellent handbook on how to make it work for you.
This is a course in high-performance leadership neatly wrapped up in a book that you can go back and refer to again and again. It is written by someone who spent an entire career in management honing these particular skills and training others in those skills. He now teaches MBA students the practical applications of leadership principles. He knows what he's writing about and teaching, and the book will prove that to you.
Best of all, the book is easy and enjoyable to read, packed with interesting personal stories that aptly illustrate his points. Get this book. It's a real winner.
