The Right to Lead by John C. Maxwell

The Right to Lead is a nice little gift book for those in a leadership position or that desire to lead. In his book, Maxwell, explains that leading comes with a price and can only be earned through time. Maxwell shares with his readers quotes and saying about leadership, statistics and facts about leading, and stories of how leaders rose in their position. You will gain insight from Biblical leaders as well and modern leaders, such as George Washington, Schwarzkopf, Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubman and others. Each chapter deals with a different aspect that it takes to become a leader. The book is very masculine and would make a very nice male graduation gift or Father's Day gift for any man in your life that is seeking to lead or is presently leading, of course women can learn from it too but it more with male leaders in mind. I as a woman enjoyed reading the book.
