Not a single original idea and misleading title

Overall

Reviewed: 11-03-12

For anyone who has never read a book on leadership in general, you would find this to be a useful introduction. For the rest of us who are trying to deepen our insights and be challenged with new and original ideas in our quest to influance sideways and upward... well - rather read something else. The book is filled with cliche's. Furthermore, I do not know how they relate the title to the contents. This book is not about leading up, but about leadership in general.
Rather look into "Linchpin", "360 degree leader" and "how to become CEO". Another book not on Audible is "The art of WOO" - excellent read on influance.
