The IT Leaders Manual is an excellent read which really does achieve its stated aim. 

The author is very clear that this is not a 'how to' guide but more a 'thought leadership' manual which is very much the impression I came away with. This distinction is also very much in keeping with the central theme of the book, the comparison between a manager and a leader. 

Having said that the book is about theory it is important to note that where appropriate, practical guidance is supplied often from tried and tested sources but with the author’s added twist in application or interpretation. 

Overall I think this book is an excellent reference source and a valuable addition to any manager’s toolkit. It is equally valuable when read cover to cover or dipped into when required. I would have no hesitation in recommending it for current or aspiring future leaders.
