Through much of his tenure as mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani was a controversial figure whose personal weaknesses often overshadowed his political strengths. After September 11, however, the world focused on Giuliani's ability to lead with courage and controlled emotion. In LEADERSHIP, Giuliani demonstrates through vivid, practical examples how he used an aggressive, hands-on management style to deal with everything from petty crime to terrorism. Tony Roberts infuses Giuliani's words with grace and tempered emotion and revels in his take-charge style. Although, at times, Roberts sounds more like a performer than the former mayor/prosecutor, he succeeds in conveying Giuliani's confidence, tenacity, and courage. Giuliani reads the book's introduction with passion, making the listener wonder why he didn't read all of his inspiring words.
