I Don't Know About The Book...

and I probably never will, but this blurb about it sure sounds true to me.

Leadership is the most overanalyzed, thoroughly dissected, and utterly confused topic in business. The expectations that leaders are held to have become so inflated that practically no one can categorically qualify as a “leader” anymore. Leaders are expected to be bold and calculated, passionate and reasonable, rational and emotional, confident and humble, driven and patient, strategic and tactical, competitive and cooperative, principled and flexible. Of course, it is possible to be all of those things…if you’re God! Faced with an ever-longer and ever-changing list of leadership criteria, who could possibly be successful as a leader, much less want to be one? Leaders Open Doors lightens the leadership load by highlighting the basic idea that leaders are simply creators of opportunity for others.
