“View from the top” book review- D. Michael Lindsay


Over the years, I have read literally hundreds of biographies and books on leadership and business. This is one of the more interesting I’ve read. I had a very difficult time putting it down.

This book was researched over a 10 year period of time, with interviews done of top leaders: over 250 ceo’s, former presidents, dozens of cabinet secretaries, members of congress, and heads of federal bureaus, and agencies representing nine White House administrations, and more than 100 leaders of the world’s largest non profit organizations. (half of the leaders worked in business, 25% in government, and 25% in non profit (including higher ed.)

I thought it was just fascinating learning what it takes to be a leader at the very elite levels of government, business, and education.
