Coming from the liberal arts school DePree mentions (Hope College) and living in the area of Herman Miller, this is a book I have heard off for a long time. I like Leadership as an Art much more. This one seemed to keep trying to build on what he had already said before, so much of it turned out to be repetitive or obvious. But it is an easy read and I do like hearing about leaders caring about people instead of processes (see my "90 Days" review). I also like that he does not hide his Christian faith -- not for everyone perhaps, but it is who he is.
