These days, my leisure reading consists of reading for school. No time for fiction, which is disappointing, but I did self-select this one for a school paper and it was quite good.

I really liked the first 100 pages of this boom and last 50. The middle was a little slow, redundant and boring. But I liked the tips and strategies it gave to become a serving leader, not a self-serving one. This will help me in my personal and professional life as well as being a better mother... ...more
