The 9 Virtues of Exceptional Leaders is a superb book for those of us who aspire to be better leaders. The authors very clearly lay out their view on what it takes to be a virtuous leader, complete with very detailed references for further consideration. It is always helpful to have a "roadmap" on how to get where you want to be. This book offers up a well-defined approach. I recommend that folks read this book, and follow the ideas presented. You'll be glad you did.
