From little known heroes to legends like Sam Walton and Bill Gates, this absorbing book weaves history, economics, and personality to reveal the secrets behind the success of the last century's greatest American business leaders. The authors show that a key to success was "contextual intelligence": the ability to "read" and understand the context of the times and seize the unique opportunities within them.Leadership titles sell well for us, and this book should get strong review attentionPowerful Resource: canon of the 20th century's greatest business leaders in one volumeAbsorbing read: the stories include both well known and unfamiliar leadersNew Leadership Theory: many leadership profiles focus on personality traits; the authors' theory of "contextual intelligence" represents a fresh perspectiveWell-researched: based on a Harvard Business School Leadership Initiative Study of 1,000 great CEOs and Founders of American companies from 1900-1999Many of the leaders profiled hail from non-US countries
