Earlier this month, members of three discussion groups on the business professionals social media web site LinkedIn submitted their recommendations for the best books about leadership.

The LinkedIn members came from these discussion groups:

  •        ExecuNet Executive Suite

  •        “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There” — By: Marshall Goldsmith
  •        “The 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership” — By: John Maxwell

In addition, the authors mentioned most frequently were Peter F. Drucker, Jack Welch and John Maxwell.
