review 1: I read this book for a leadership course I'm taking, and I'm glad I read it. I would recommend, though, that if you're interested in this book the Global Edition is hard to read--the print is small in the paperback. So, spend the money and buy the hardcover edition. I'm a cheapskate, and if you're tapped for funds, the paperback is there. The case studies at the back of the book are great to ponder, and you might surprise yourself with your answers to the questions about them.
review 2: Although there are some excellent studies on many different leadership behaviors in Yukl's 7th edition of Leadership, the material is rather dry and drawn out. Truthfully, this was a chore to read due to the constant contradictions of previous statements of fact throughout t
... morehe book: it rambles at times aimlessly among topics to the point that you are not sure exactly what is true, what is false, or what is inconclusive (most of the studies examined, early models and latter models, all seem to end up inconclusive in results, which makes it quite frustrating to stay interested in the material being presented).I did find the section on group behavior and group leadership interesting and useful in my own profession, and will put it to work this next year when we have our annual weekend pow-wow. less
