IN THIS SUMMARY
In this era in which good leaders are sorely needed, Gardner’s intuitive diagnosis stands as a valuable contribution to the understanding of the essential nature and processes of leadership-it is a contribution that cannot help but enlighten all who seek clearer insights about how effective leadership might be facilitated. Leading Minds examines what leadership entails from a psychological perspective. It goes beyond Gardner’s prior work and cogently demonstrates what is distinctive about those who presume to provide leadership across domains (or fields of endeavor). Thus, this work could aptly be called, "The Key Ingredients That Link Seemingly Disparate Personalities."
