The Art of Leadership by Manning and Curtis is an applied book that combines behavior theory with business practice. Each unit teaches central concepts and skills in an important area of leadership development. The book is made more valuable and the impact greater by the self-evaluation questionnaires and practical exercises that are used for personal development and class involvement. The Art of Leadership is more than a textbook. It is a "learning" book that actively involves the reader in the learning process.

The Art of Leadership teaches concepts, principles and skills of leadership in a way that is appropriate for both new and experienced leaders, as well as for the everyday person who must influence others to get things done. The books goal is for students to develop their full potential as a leader and to become the kind of leader they always wanted to have.
