Book News Annotation:
Psychologist Howard Gardner, creator of the multiple intelligences framework and author of many books on the mind, explores the major facets of leadership from the perspective of psychology. In this work for general readers (first published in 1995), he presents a framework for understanding leadership and illustrates the framework with profiles of famous leaders such as anthropologist Margaret Mead, civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., Pope John XXIII, and Mahatma Gandhi. The book is illustrated with b&w historical photos of leaders. This edition contains a new preface by Gardner reviewing his reasons for writing the book, offering reflections on the past 15 years in leadership studies, and commenting on how leadership has changed in the era of "truthiness, twaddle, and Twitter."
