John Mackey and Raj Sisodia, Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business, Foreword by Bill George. Boston: Harvard Business Review Press, 2013.
This essay/review is primarily US-centric and my irresistible attraction to digging a little deeper into the lives of the authors, as well as exploring their work. I have labeled this section as a preface because it is truly material that I am offering before reading the book. I believe this is a reasonable approach, since my …
John P. Forman and Laurel A. Ross. Albany, NY: Excelsior Editions, SUNY, 2013.
If you are looking for an introductory text that you can include in an undergraduate or Master’s course on leadership, here it is.

Therese Rowley. Mapping a New Reality: Discovering intuitive intelligence. Author, 2012.
As one reads the book, Mapping a New Reality by Dr. Rowley, it is quickly observed that she strives to encourage the reader to explore and find the patterns and interconnectedness among their personal experiences. Conceptually, the experience is similar to constructing a Tony Buzan ‘Mind Map’ of your life, thoughts and experiences and seeing how they are connected with each other.
As the …
