This book should be required reading by every MBA programs on the planet. By deconstructing the biological and neurological mechanic of our emotions, Simon articulate perfectly his conception of true leadership, illustrated by compelling case study, inspiring stories and clear cut examples and metaphors. The next pep talk you hear about "be a leader" and "make the world a better place you found it"... you may reconsider few things after reading this book. And if you want to become a better manager, read the book... you will learn that leading is the best way to manage especially when you operate in a toxic corporate culture, no matter your position, rank or function. If you haven't read Simon's first book "Start With Why", read it first before "Leaders Eat last". It is the perfect introduction to core ideas that are more deeply explored in this second book. "Start With Why" has personally helped me in my line of work (brand design) in ways that few other books as ever done. "Leader Eat Last" has already helped me figure out many things that will have a strong and lasting impact on the way i operate. So a big thank you Simon for your serotonin and our oxytocine.
