      " Brilliant book on Leadership. It goes back to leadership basics, using plenty of real-life stories of top leaders. It talks about leadership that comes from a place of integrity and character, leadership that makes a difference and has substance. Comes with a series of self-evaluating questions, which are great to direct your leadership on the right track, or True North. "
