Strengths-Based Leadership

Strengths Based Leadership: Great Leaders, Teams, and Why People Follow - Barry Conchie, Tom Rath Very well done! I received a copy of the sequel for review and so read this one in preparation. Wow! What an original idea for a dystopian novel! I'm finding it hard to write a review that won't give anything away. I don't want to spoil anything so pardon me if I keep things a little bit vague. This book is written in the form of a written transcript of recordings made by Kyle Straker. A teenager living in what I presume to be current day (or close enough). An event occurs leaving only Kyle and 3 other people normal while the rest of his town is somehow changed. More than that I won't say. Kyle and his 3 companions try to figure out what the heck is going on and why it's happening. The pacing in this book is fantastic. The author does a fantastic job of giving you just enough that your satisfied but you still want more. There are surprise twists and some danger and even a hint of romance though that is not the focus of this book.At the end, all I could think was wow! I keep comparing this to The Matrix in my mind. It's one of those mind-blowing ideas that makes you stop and think.Recommended for fans of dystopia and light YA sci-fi.
