Ask any top leader how many books on leadership they have read. "Too many to count" will most likely be their answer.

Top performing leaders read across many subjects, not just on the topic of leadership. Leaders know that they must educate themselves in virtually all areas of their business.

Leaders are a rare breed of people that are pro-active in seeking knowledge; they're highly self-motivated. Moreover, "leaders are readers" - and they "yearn to learn".

The saying “Knowledge is power” is a timeless truth that all leaders understand. Effective leadership ideas and resources are a highly valued commodity, as is anything that will ethically give you an advantage.

"The information-age we live in provides ever-increasing opportunities to learn and grow."

Leaders are connected; they are wired into current events; their market and industry news; trends and new leadership development tools and information.

Are you connected? If not, you are about to be!

Here we have established our library of top book reviews on leadership. We are dedicated to providing you with books on leadership and other quality information that is of the highest value and that is relevant and current in today's marketplace.
