Description

This audio book is Warren Bennis' true autobiography, direct from the source, before other biographies start to come out. Bennis' long and storied life and career are filled with insights about many of the people who helped (and hindered) him along the way. Characters include Douglas MacGregor, Abraham Maslow, Timothy Leary, Werner Erhard, Ayn Rand, Nathaniel Branden, Ann Landers, Peter Drucker, Tom Peters and many more. In addition, Bennis' life and career has traversed eight decades, and the events of these decades are brought home through his many stories. As a Jewish child in a gentile town in the 30s, a young army recruit in the Battle of the Bulge, a college student in the one of the first progressive precursors to the civil rights movement, a patient undergoing daily psychoanalysis for five years, and later a university provost during the Vietnam protests, Bennis has had a first-hand seat to many of the tumultuous episodes of recent history. They shaped him and his thinking and actions; he was and is both an amazing observer and a player in this history.

This audio book promises to be honest, warts and all, and at times revelatory. Bennis is an eloquent writer -- one of the best in business -- and he will be working closely with Patricia Ward Bierdeman, his longtime writer/collaborator and personal friend, to shape a unique and lasting audio book.
