This is a great book for the practitioner that is wanting to study leadership as more than a "passing fancy", so to speak. It is in depth and covers many aspects of leadership. Many leadership books are very superficial on the subject, this one is not. When it says theory AND practice, that is exactly what it means, emphasis on the AND!
