Really useful and accessible overview

I have really enjoyed the books I have listened to in this series. What You Need to Know About Leadership may be just an overview of the subject, but it is surprisingly inclusive, very accessible, well read and the design of the book with overview, who you need to know, and practical examples means it is eminently listenable to. For me is supplements my other reading on the subject, suggests other authors I can be reading (or downloading audio books for). I am studying an MSc at the moment and can thoroughly recommend these books as a supplement to your other reading.
