A First-rate Madness
[uncovering the Links Between Leadership and Mental Illness]Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2011
An investigation into the surprisingly deep correlation between mental illness and successful leadership, as seen through some of history's greatest politicians, generals, and businesspeople. The author draws from the careers and personal plights of such notable leaders as Lincoln, Churchill, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., JFK, and others from the past two centuries to build an argument at once controversial and compelling: the very qualities that mark those with mood disorders-- realism, empathy, resilience, and creativity-- also make for the best leaders in times of crisis.
