The 100-Mile Walk: A Father and Son on a Quest to Find the Essence of Leadership

The 100-Mile Walk: A Father and Son on a Quest to Find the Essence of Leadership - Sander A. Flaum, Jonathon A. Flaum, Mechele Flaum A good leadership book about a father and son who walked 100 miles together -- each leading the other for 50 miles -- while sharing their leadership beliefs and philosophies. The most striking thing about the book is the contrasting views of leadership (old school vs. the “up-and-comers”) and what it means both today and as the next generation of leaders emerge. It differentiates itself by not being a leadership book “by old guys for old guys”.

The primary author the book (the father) teaches leadership at the Fordham Graduate School of Business in NYC and heads up a leadership forum there for the students. One of the aspects I found valuable were the pearls of wisdom that he shares from these leaders, most of which are pretty insightful.
