There is great power in his idea that we construct the world and become effective when we get this, share this, and get interested in the stories of others. This book makes leadership accessible to all, even the quiet, shy, avoid-eye-contact ones among us. It is also written with elegant simplicity. Buy it, read it, pass it around. (Peter Block, Partner at Designed Learning; author of Community, the Structure of Belonging)

Highly practical, though not too academic, solidly researched this book is a pleasure to read.
Examples and case stories make this book an easy read.
To apply it, that's another story. unfortunately, it appears to be quite difficult to find a certified trainer for clear leadership. But that's not a problem of the book.
The exercises are also very useful.
I highly recommend this book.
This book really helped clarify everything I'd been learning about myself and others. I'd been introduced to the idea of relational 'boundaries' in other books before, but without the emotional intelligence to inform your decisions, boundaries (or rules) are just not enough. This book is really foundational and kind of puts the rest of the books on boundaries to shame, even though it's not even advertised as a book on boundaries.
I am now so aware of when I am making up 'stories' about people to fill in the gaps of my understanding of them. Just the first 60 pages or so were all I needed to do a 180 at work and with some of my closest friends. I found I'd been mislabeling people for years!! I've been telling eveyone about this book it's so good!!
