A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book about Studying Leadership

A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book about Studying Leadership

An engaging guide through the cacophony of competing perspectives and models of leadership, the new edition includes an expanded discussion of contemporary topics like followership, gender, ethics, authenticity, and leadership and the arts, set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis.

Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the 'Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap' series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way.

Suitable for students of leadership, professionals working in organizations and anyone curious about the workings of leadership.
