Praise for Drucker on Leadership

"Bill Cohen′s Drucker on Leadership is the best collection of Peter Drucker′s unique insights, deep wisdom, and practical advice I have ever read. Cohen channels Drucker as only a three–decades–long colleague and student can. You will find the lessons highly accessible, immensely enjoyable, and wonderfully fresh."

Jim Kouzes, coauthor, The Leadership Challenge

"Cohen has written with clarity and authority about the major challenges facing leaders today. And Cohen, like Drucker, emphasizes responsibility and integrity in leadership, qualities so desperately needed today. I strongly recommend this book to you."

Joseph A. Maciariello, Horton Professor of Management, Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, and coauthor (with Peter Drucker), The Daily Drucker and Management by Peter F. Drucker

"Cohen′s unique relationship with Peter Drucker, as student and friend, allows him to extract valuable leadership lessons from Drucker′s writings and teachings on management. Cohen′s ′labor of love′ provides the essential lessons for leaders straight from the Father of Modern Management."

Ronald E. Riggio, director, Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College

"For those who aspire to lead and we need a new generation of Drucker–like leaders in organizations in every country around the world Bill Cohen distills the essential leadership lessons from the world′s greatest management thinker."

Ira A. Jackson, dean and professor of management, Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University

"Through a blend of anecdote and analysis, Bill Cohen has given us great insight into Peter Drucker′s thinking on leadership an aspect of Drucker′s work that many have misconstrued or overlooked altogether. This is a new prism through which to view Drucker and, as such, a valuable contribution to the field."

Rick Wartzman, executive director, The Drucker Institute
