Great short listen. The story line brings a small group of people together in a real life scenario and shows how leadership is intigrated into every aspect of our life.

Jesus thrown in your face
I didn't like this book. I expected to have new management ideas presented. Perhaps something to help me become a better manager. But, the first thing that comes up something like this:
Managers should take a lesson from the best manager the world has ever known, Jesus of Nazareth.
I don't mind religion, but when I pay for a business advice book, I don't want to be preached a sermon. There may be some business ideas in the book, but make no mistake: This is a book on religion, not on management.
