Heroic Leadership is a celebration of our greatest heroes, from legends such as Mahatma Gandhi to the legions of unsung heroes who transform our world quietly behind the scenes. The authors argue that all great heroes are also great leaders. The term ‘heroic leadership’ is coined to describe how heroism and leadership are intertwined, and how our most cherished heroes are also our most transforming leaders.

This book offers a new conceptual framework for understanding heroism and heroic leadership, drawing from theories of great leadership and heroic action.Ten categories of heroism are described:Trending Heroes, Transitory Heroes, Transparent Heroes, Transitional Heroes, Tragic Heroes, Transposed Heroes, Transitional Heroes, Traditional Heroes, Transforming Heroes, and Transcendent Heroes. The authors describe the lives of 100 exceptional individuals whose accomplishments place them into one of these ten hero categories.These 100 hero profiles offer supporting evidence for a new integration of theories of leadership and theories of heroism.

Like the previous volume by these two researchers, this book presents a strong advocacy of heroism and a higher standard of devotion to our fellow human beings. The writer of the negative review seems to have read an entirely different book, which would explain the incoherence and non sequiturs. As Mr. Schultz states in his response, the logic behind the inclusion of drone bombings is a bit fuzzy, as is the politicization of the review in general. The reviewer seems hostile not only toward academia, but America and the arts and sciences as well. It seems hard to believe that anybody would not understand the role of literature and folklore in the psychology of heroism or the importance of archetype to culture. It seems that the reviewer has his own political biases which he feels compelled to share, whether the venue is appropriate or not.

In fact, I recommend both this book and its predecessor as fascinating and insightful, as well as captivating, compendiums of the many diverse heroes that populate our world, our history and our mythology. If you are looking to add to your knowledge and insight into the human experience, and perhaps could use some inspiration in a tiring and extreme age, this book is a good choice.

Needed this for a class and it was cheaper than at the bookstore. Wasn't missing pages like the copies in bookstore were. Large print and easy to read

I really enjoyed this book--it was an insightful treatise on heroic leaders, well-written and filled with exemplars of great leadership. Both Allison and Goethals are top notch scholars in psychology and as a result, the book shines. I'd really recommend it. As a scholar in this field myself, I found the previous Valeri review of this book really off-base--he/she is no doubt prolific at name-dropping and pompous pontifications on how well-respected experts should do their job, but I don't get the vitriolic venom spewing from that review. I couldn't understand why anyone would get so angry about a book, academics, and publishers all in one review. Seems like he/she is a bit angry about more than a book! Why so hateful of academics, my friend? Couldn't get into a doctoral program because your GREs were too low? Why the attack on publishers? They didn't like your book proposal? Attacking the publishers on book price? For a scholarly book, that's not at all expensive (I guess you wouldn't know that if all you read are $10.99 romance novels). Here's the bottom line: SCHOLARS in the field, the experts like JAMES (not John) MacGregor Burns love Heroic Leadership. I pick my books based on the advice of those who actually write books,not those writing poison pen reviews about books!

My own interest in this book stems from my desire to use it in an undergraduate class I teach on identity and the construction of the self. Even though they sound like absurd questions, asking students who is the braver hero: Superman, who can't be hurt, or Batman who can be, is a good way to stimulate discussion. Superman has special powers, Batman's augmentation comes through technology. So which is better? I can then extend these questions to students when they are asked to evaluate their own lives, or the construction of meaning in their own lives. Who deserves more praise? The student who puts himself or herself through school, or the student who earns a scholarship. Who is to blame in the case of marital infidelity? You, or your partner? Or does that question even make sense to ask?

The thing I like about this book is that the authors have provided ten types of heroes, provided examples, and then made an attempt to identify the relevant characteristics that make that type of hero distinct from other types. It is small leap to extend their arguments from those about heroes to those about people in general (our friends, family, co-workers, or even ourselves). The book is also clearly written and very accessible for an undergraduate population.

The idea of rating heroes in terms of who is the better hero makes very little sense to me, which is why I was surprised by the antagonistic review provided by an earlier reader. The authors of this book never claimed that their list of heroes was somehow definitive. They were reporting what the subjects of their data collection reported. I agree with the earlier reviewer that at some level it makes no sense to compare Capt. Kirk, who does not exist, with the Dalia Lama, who does. But at another level, I think it DOES make sense to compare them. What matters is not who is the better hero, but why human beings think these individuals--fiction or not--have heroic attributes and what those attributes are and why we think of them as heroic. I personally am saddened that there are so few scientists on the list and so many sports figures and fictional characters. To me, being able to hit a little ball with a stick does not qualify as being heroic. But millions of people do, if it's called golf or baseball. But the popularity of sports and fictional heroes says more about the people who answered the authors' survey than the scholarship of the authors of the book.
