"What makes great leaders great? That′s the question Burt Nanus attempts to answer in Visionary Leadership (and does so quite well, by the way). But if you′re thinking this is going to be another one of those nebulous, touchy–feely, here′s–the–kind–of–charisma–it–takes–to–get–ahead–in–business books, you′re only partly right. Visionary Leadership is all about the one essential component of great leadersnamely, being a visionarybut it′s not a theoretical treatise. Nanus writes not only of the necessity of a vision to your business′ success, but also how to develop and sustain that vision.′′

"Likely to prove the most important management book of the year.′′ ––Edward Cornish, president, World Future Society

"Ideas with vision have power and magic that carry those ideas beyond the people who create them. Burt Nanus shows us how to find such vision.′′ ––U.S. Senator Bob Graham
