Are you frustrated with the followership of your leadership textbooks? Perhaps you're just looking for alternative ways of looking at leadership beyond the prescriptive 'how to' approach that dominates bookshelves - for a book that realises that leadership is a relational activity and will, therefore, not just tell you what to do.The first edition of this popular and acclaimed book quickly became a favourite among students for the pithy and easy way in which it guided them through the din of competing perspectives and models on leadership. The Second Edition continues to take readers out of their comfort zones, with expanded discussion of hot topics like follower perspectives, gender and the financial crisis.In teaching you how to critically appraise leadership theories rather than faithfully accept them, this book will not merely make you a better student of leadership, but a better leader too.

Brad Jackson is the Fletcher Building Education Trust Chair in Leadership at The University of Auckland Business School.
