Author:  Deborrah Himsel

Title: Leadership Sopranos Style: How To Become A More Effective Boss

Publisher:  Dearborn Trade Publishing

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

I Got A Book You Cannot Refuse to Read!

Want an interesting and entertaining way to get a lot of business management points across to your employees; or perhaps you are looking for something to enhance your own leadership style? May I recommend that you get a copy a very knowledgeable but slightly unorthodox business book called “Leadership Sopranos Style: How To Become A More Effective Boss.”  It is not your typical dry and humorless regurgitations of old management mantras. This book, while tongue-in-check at times, explores the world of management through the leadership style of that fictional TV anti-hero Tony Soprano. That should be enough to shake up the old school managers but once you relate to what author Deborrah Himsel is really saying about his style you will find a real personal vehicle for leadership growth.

This book in no way endorses the mob or whacking managers who fail to achieve but does point out the advantages of looking people “right in the eye” and letting them know what it is you expect from them. It also takes a look at Tony’s approach to conflict resolutions with sit down meetings. Once you realize that most of these references to Tony are just a clever and entertaining metaphor to make a point, you will not only enjoy the book but also learn something valuable from it.

Himsel’s book gives the reader many newer and sometimes edgy insights to the workplace and those skills you need to succeed. She does a craftsman’s job of presenting strategy and management leadership principles. The book is charming and a pleasure to read even if you are not going to be a big Fortune 500 executive. You also do not have to have been fan of the TV show, or in fact, ever have even seen it to make the leadership connections.

The book receives the American Authors Association’s top book rating of FIVE STARS!
