"Do leaders matter? Are leaders born or made? <em>The Science of Leadership</em> focuses on the psychology of leadership. Findings from psychological research enable an evidence-based approach that explores global research in organisational leadership. Barling incorporates personal reflections based on 20 years' involvement with leadership research and executive leadership development. The book translates leadership theories and research into everyday behaviours, and explains how researchers generate knowledge on leadership. Barling explores what leadership can teach us beyond the boardroom, for example, in sports, politics, and schools. Separate chapters cover topics including gender and leadership, destructive leadership, and followship." --<em>WITSReview</em>
