Learning to Lead would be a good intro to leadership books for those who had not already read many if at all. I found it repetitive but that's for the simple fact of already reading several books on the topic.

I give this book a 5 stars because Ron was true to what he promised on the topics below. 
Not many 'how-to' books actually give you new insights but this is one of them.
Ron generously shared his own experience and views which is unique and 
It is inspiring and refreshing to learn and hear from the CEO level person like himself.
He covered these topics although the flow of the book was not very smooth to read and was loaded with content.
• Launching your career quest
• Avoiding professional pitfalls, wrong turns, and wasted effort
• Overcoming interpersonal challenges and conflicts
• Building and leading an effective, high-performance team
• Prioritizing and solving problems from multiple perspectives
• Developing your leadership style and mastering communication
• Casting a vision and changing the culture of your organization

Learn new techniques for leading. Regardless of what area in your life you are leading Ron Williams teachers you how to inspire those you are leading rather than manipulate them.

Easy to read a personal story and road to leading others - this would be a good way to call the book in my opinion. I found a lot of learning points for me and it is always great to see the career and personal grenades on a real example. Very relaxing and thoughtful reading for me.

This was an easy read, with lots of useful information for the budding career person. It was very corporate orientated. I didn't finish it because it wasn't right for me.

Hit or miss. I enjoyed some of this but some made me lose interest and skip around. The book has some useful information and you can learn some things even if you skip around!
