With his soothing vocal clarity and youthful-sounding changes in vocal pitch, narrator Oliver Wyman adds enormous appeal to this captivating book on leadership. The author, a business journalist who interviews CEOs for a Sunday NEW YORK TIMES column, has grouped the career stories and wisdom of 75 such people into three components of the CEO’s job—succeeding, managing, and leading. Among the many substantial discoveries he made is that the leader of a large company is often someone who grew into power by listening, studying why people succeed, and connecting with others in a personal, candid way. Bryant has a wonderful ear for narrative. By letting his CEOs tell their own stories, his message takes the form of a tapestry of insights on personal leadership.
