    • What a civilized world this would be if everyone read and learned from her research. Good read!
    • This book combines some of her most useful concepts from previous books, expands on them, and applies them to leadership. So good!!
    • This book is terrific. The only thing I wish was different is that she told stories about leaders in organizations and how they exhibited or didn't exhibit the behaviors she discussed and what the effects were on their organizations.
    • While I am an admirer of Prof. Brown's work overall--particularly in lifting up the value of mutuality and vulnerabilty--this book is lacking in many ways. It appears that a lot of Prof. Brown's ideas have been shoehorned into a leadership context without an understanding of what complex and fast paced organizations are dealing with in this moment. The fact is that businesses are not generally safe places for people--even when there is great leadership. Case law and the chipping away of worker's rights means that vulnerability can and will be weaponized against those who have less power, or when/if they run afoul of leadership. How easily some of the recommended techniques could be used for manipulation. The chapter on values is particularly bad and devoid of a fully realized ethical construct. Finally, the neologism--"operationalizinator" is just horrible.
    • We were excited about these books and ordered for an executive conference. We were disappointed with the quality - the picture speaks for itself.
