Tracy Reynolds offers a fresh perspective on the issue of leading when you’re not the one at the top, which is where most of us spend our lives. The ideas are both practical and heartfelt. This book stands out from others on this subject, as it’s full of stories, strategies and steps to take to influence from the “second chair.” You don’t have to be a musician to get it. I highly recommend this book.
