This concise, coherent, and elegant book offers an eminently practical synthesis of years of empirical and theoretical work on how change occurs. It maps and illustrates an original and memorable model against which leaders in all settings can check to see whether they, themselves, and those around them, are adhering to Gandhi's dictum to be the change they want to see.
