"I plan to continue using the Daft text. I have evaluated several other leadership textbooks, and consider Daft to be head and shoulders above the others. I recommend it to colleagues when the opportunity arises. I have had excellent feedback from both lecture and online students concerning 3E and 4E." - William Russell Brown, Navarro College— William Russell Brown
"This is a superb introductory textbook. I recommend that the students retain it as a reference throughout their program of studies." - Glenn K Cunningham, Duquesne University— Glenn K Cunningham
"I have found this text to be the most well written of the traditional Leadership textbooks. Students have often told me they like the text for this reason (and typically students do not make such complementary comments about a textbook)." - Joseph Martelli, University of Findlay— Joseph Martelli
"Students have a wealth of information in each chapter coming at them from different directions and in different formats. I particularly like the Leadership Bookshelf and Consider This box segments. As self-learning professionals, several of my students have commented that they have gone online and purchased books discussed in the Leadership Bookshelf boxes to augment their leadership libraries." - Shand H. Stringham, Duquesne University— Shand H. Stringham
