Recensioner i media

“This is a great, useable, and student friendly textbook. It provides excellent leadership/theory/ content in an understandable manner and ii is broken down in to an easily understandable presentation. This book is student friendly, while being an excellent tool for the instructor. I recommend it without reservation!”

“The perfect book for an introductory course in leadership.  I think it aligns well with both education and business, and could be utilized to teach leadership to all students if leadership is a part of a core curriculum.”

“This is my favorite book on the topic. I think Northouse has a tremendously valuable product here and the approach is very user/reader-friendly.”
