Review

"John Hennessy is Silicon Valley's gold standard. In both business and academia, he is the true measure of enlightened leadership and rock-solid integrity, paving the way for and acting as inspiration to the new generation of entrepreneurs. It is a cause for celebration that he has finally put his wisdom and experiences into print." -- John Chambers * former CEO of Cisco * "For me, John Hennessy is one of the great university presidents. Leading Matters is a must read. As an alumnus, I take great pride that my alma mater had such a leader at its helm. With this great book, he leads us still." -- Vartan Gregorian, President * Carnegie Corporation of New York * "This book is just like its author: humble, empathetic, courageous and very smart. It tells leaders a hard truth: successful leadership isn't just about confidence or expertise. It also requires the harder-won qualities of humility and empathy. John came by these lessons honestly and is now generously sharing them with a new generation of leaders." -- Sundar Pichai * CEO of Google * "John Hennessy was a transformational president for Stanford University. In this insightful book, he provides a "how to" guide that will benefit leaders from all walks of life. And it's a good read too -- with wonderful examples of how to marry vision and execution in the face of both challenges and opportunities on the road to change." -- Condoleezza Rice * Professor and Former Provost of Stanford University * "In Leading Matters, John Hennessy challenges each of us to consider how we can develop our own leadership style. His powerful insights-informed by his long and distinguished tenure as president of Stanford University-are about grounding leadership in empathy, courage, and service. This book is a guide for leading in good and tough times alike-and for helping raise the next generation of leaders." -- Sheryl Sandberg * COO of Facebook and Founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org * "Leading Matters is a gorgeous, inspirational, and essential handbook for the leaders we all hope to be. John Hennessy shares more than 90 life lessons in leadership -- lessons learned as an entrepreneur, professor, and president of one of the world's great universities. Ranging from artificial intelligence to the arts to the value of empathy, John's stories are a rare gift for the courageous, humble servant leader inside each of us. Now, more than ever, we need this book." -- John Doerr * author of Measure What Matters * "In this book, John Hennessy shares deep insights gained from a phenomenal career as an engineer, an entrepreneur, and the president of a world-class university. It's an indispensable guide for leaders at every level." -- Bill Gates * Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation * --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
