PRAISE FOR The Leadership Moment:
"Useem's remarkably engaging book is about leaders who make a difference--for good or for ill. The Leadership Moment is not only grand in its sweep but also practical. Reading it gives a new appreciation for the essential role of leadership in all of society's institutions, and it provides tangible insights for becoming better leaders ourselves."
--Donald C. Hambrick, Columbia business School; co-author of Strategic Leadership
