David Lim’s collection of insights into the nature of leadership is interesting and a little provocative. His own life experience is a case study of how leadership requires both knowing and challenging oneself, and knowing and challenging others. I dipped into his book at leisure and found nuggets each time I did.

Most how-to books on leadership have a handful of pointers, but not 71 lessons! The value of this book is not that it be read in one go, and for a potential leader to remember all the lessons. Its value is as a kind of bedside companion, for someone to flip through and find a particular lesson to be insightful and worthwhile internalizing in our daily practice of leadership.
— Ho Kwon Ping, Chairman of Banyan Tree Group
