This is a very well researched and well thought-through study of what can happen to business leaders as a result of excessive pride. The author uses real world examples we are familiar with, such as Steve Jobs and Michael Dell, which keeps the reading intersting. He is very respectful in his analysis of their failures (there is no bashing here) and he goes on to point out what they learned from these experiences and how they have grown as a result. He maps these individual stories to frameworks he has developed to assist leaders at all levels in gauging their susceptibility to failure based on excessive pride. I got a lot out of this book and would recommend it to anyone in, or aspiring to, a leadership role in the workplace or elsewhere.
