    interesting title and concept. however, the author fails to deliver anything novel. the book is full of many short topics and platitudes, without going deep anywhere. quoting the perspectives of the interviewees too frequently, it also gets hard to read. however, every chapter has a nice 1 page summary that is really well done.

    Great concept for a book and an interesting read touching on a range of leadership lessons - but really disappointing that the author chose to focus on interviewing just male leaders for the book.

    This book is fine. It has solid leadership advice that some may complain is nothing new, but when so many “leaders” in our world fail at all of these things, I commend Young for repeating them. Great advice that should be taken seriously. However, the writing was VERY basic and pretty much just filling in the space between interviews.

    The Making of a Leader (2020) is an invaluable trove of leadership wisdom. Drawing on interviews with seven coaches at the peak of their profession, it explains not only what a great leader is but how you can make yourself into one.
