To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this book as part of a class I am taking and could not have been happier. This book is meant to be used as a workbook which means you won't just rip through it on a plane. You will spend considerable amount of time thinking while you read and long after you have completed the book. Each chapter includes a writing exercise and a movie to watch that will also get you thinking. The outcome of each chapter and the book as a whole is entirely personal so I cannot predict the ways in which you might change the way you think after you have read the book, but rest assured you will be much more self aware and thoughtful about how conduct yourself personally and professionally.
If you are debating between the Field Guide and "Deep Change: Discovering the Leader Within" regular book I would suggest the Field Guide personally. I own both, but the Field Guide is easier to work with and inspired me to answer the questions and do the activities which as opposed to reading without being compelled to think about myself as much.
Robert Quinn has a remarkable clarity of thought and intuition which combine very effectively in this personal leadership development guideline. It is a well constructed stratagem that has wide appeal within my executive coaching practice and for which I'm grateful.
I'd recommend this field book to any serious student of leadership and responsible executive. David E C Huggins
This book accentuates the book Robert Quinn published in the 90s. This field manual is relevant for today as it asks tough questions that see your situation from multiple angles. It also guides you in a developmental process that is educational but dynamic. Well worth the money.
