MEDIA REVIEWS

"This wonderfully useful bookintegrates the best thinking in the fields of complexity science, leadership, and innovation. The result is a useful and practical guide to using key complexity concepts to understand and enactleadership in a way thatfacilitates continuous innovation." - Ellen Van Velsor, Senior Fellow, Center for Creative Leadership

"For the lifelong student and (hopefully successful) practitioner of leadership, the authors greatly enriched my understanding of leadership and break new, exciting ground. For the engineer and technologist, they give me comfort that there is real science underpinning the art of leadership. They provide broad shoulders for others to stand on." - Reed Harrison, CEO, Antietam Strategy Partners, Inc.

"The authors have stepped out of conventional management studies to synthesize ideas from the sciences of ecology and mathematics to articulate a new view of management and complexity. This is a well-timed analysis of how leaders can leverage networks, not in a superficial manner, but in concrete terms, to increase the velocity of innovation in their organizations." - Dan Keoppel, Executive Director, Strategic Investments, Verizon Communications

"In this scholarly treatise the authors create a compelling argument that there is a new science of leadership. This book is for the serious reader who believes that you can apply generative leadership to your organization and win. Use your time well and read this book!" - Phil Harkins, CEO, Linkage, Inc.
