With so many leadership texts available for educators to use in their professional practice and work with students, it is often difficult to know where to turn. In an effort to provide members of the National Clearinghouse for Leadership Programs with new resources, NCLP commissioned a series of book reviews on popular leadership texts in spring 2011 from graduate student leadership educators at Bowling Green State University and the University of Maryland.
There are many more books on leadership left to be reviewed! NCLP hopes to continue to add and expand this resource for members in the coming years.
To recommend a book to be reviewed or to submit a review of your own for the National Clearinghouse for Leadership Programs to consider posting, please contact NCLP via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reviews should follow the template used in those posted on this site. NCLP editors reserve the right to accept or reject the submission and to do final copyediting. Typically only one review will be posted on any book.
