Product description


“A wonderfully entertaining book about leaders from very different professions and walks of life. David Rubenstein’s dialogues with individuals as different as Jeff Bezos and Yo-Yo Ma skillfully evoke their personal life stories and the qualities that led to their success. Above all, Rubenstein discerns the attributes of leadership they all have in common. How To Lead is an exceptionally instructive and inspirational book.”
Robert M. Gates, former U.S. Secretary of Defense, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Duty

"In these fast-moving, often tumultuous times, wise and effective leadership is critical. David Rubenstein’s How To Lead provides a compelling view into how legendary leaders are made. This is required reading for today's leaders looking to up their game―and future leaders looking to enter the arena."
Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org

“Leadership is not a science but an art, and the wonderful David Rubenstein has convened a Louvre-like gathering of masters in the engaging and illuminating How to Lead. From statecraft to sports, this is an invaluable book about the things that matter most.”
―Jon Meacham, New York Times bestselling author of The Soul of America

“David Rubenstein deftly distills the key qualities of effective leadership while treating the reader to a feast of his inimitable interviews with many of our nation’s most accomplished leaders,  How to Lead is a gripping compilation of intimate and fascinating conversations peppered with powerful lessons in how to compete and thrive in the most demanding environments.” 
Susan E. Rice, Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Advisor

“It’s time to add David Rubenstein to the roster of master interviewers like Bill Moyers, Lesley Stahl, Anderson Cooper and Jim Lehrer. Rubenstein persuades two dozen prominent Americans to tell the inside stories of how they rose to power and leadership.  Fascinating tales at a snappy pace ― and a fresh reminder that we still have real leaders in our midst.”
David Gergen, CNN Senior Analyst; Founding Director, Center For Public Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School

“David Rubenstein is an expert on leadership. Reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets.”
―Walter Isaacson, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Leonardo da Vinci and Steve Jobs

"Rubenstein wants readers to see the full spectrum of assets and liabilities in leaders."

“Rubenstein shares his unparalleled access to many influential leaders, using his stature and experience to provide insights otherwise unavailable to many....An introduction launches into Rubenstein's ruminations on life; his 12 attributes of leadership, from luck and focus to failure and integrity; plus his belief that real success occurs during the second and third "thirds" of life on earth....Readers will want to keep a pen handy: “Most of our regrets are acts of omission” (Jeff Bezos). “Your legacy is every life that you’ve touched” (Oprah). “Data is actually sexist” (Melinda Gates). “If you’re willing to make the trade-offs that you need to make, you can have it all” (Indra Nooyi). Words for life.”
