Fundamentals of Management
Task Description: Read an autobiography by a leader.
The autobiography can be any author on a book of any length. The book must offer insight into successful leadership.
Analyse the autobiography with the goal of identify key leadership arguments and how the author supports these arguments. Evaluate the author’s strengths and weaknesses in a ‘success in what they did/do’ context. (Let’s be honest, the author would not get to publish a book if they were not successful.)
Examples of an autobiographical leadership books are 1) The Martha Rules by Martha Stewart, and 2) The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama.
Structure of the Book Review
The introduction to the book review is to be short and direct. It provides two key elements: background and thesis.
Background: The introduction must identify the book and author under review along with any essential historical background such as the time-period and region. Reveal what the key leadership principles are.
Thesis: In your introduction (generally toward the end) provide a succinct, clear evaluation of the book. The evaluation is the thesis for the review. Your thesis should encompass three main components:
1. Reveal the most salient management principles of the book
2. Identify things like strengths & contributions/ weaknesses & shortcomings
3. Explain why and/or in what ways you think the autobiography wants to disclose these strengths and weaknesses.
II. Summary of Key Arguments
Provide a summary of the book.
Please don’t repeat or mirror everything in it. Identify what its essential arguments are and briefly summarise them. Comment on things like:
• What is the book’s thesis? How is it similar to or different to yours (or others) leadership success views?
• How is the book organised around the idea of leadership? What are the major success arguments offered by the author?
• Assess the evidence presented using examples taken from the book?
Identify and then explain & develop the evaluation made by your thesis.
Use examples and quotations from the book to ‘illustrate by evidence’ your assessment of the work. This section should constitute the bulk of your review.
By way of example, if your thesis argues that the work provides a careful and detailed examination of leadership, you should point toward places in the book where it does so. Similarly, if you argue that the work fails to recognise a particular perspective, give examples of places in the text that you think would have benefited from attention to that leadership perspective.
Provide a succinct summation of your review.
Describe what the autobiography contributes to business leadership. What limitations does it possess in your view? Is there a distinction between a leader and a manager(?), and if so, what is are those distinctions? Does the book suggest interesting avenues for future research in business management?
Task Length: 2000 words (+/- 10%). Does not include title page, contents page, reference pages if required.
