Leadership Is Language
- The Hidden Power of What You Say--and What You Don't
- Written by: L. David Marquet
- Narrated by: L. David Marquet
- Length: 10 hrs and 40 mins
In his last book, Turn the Ship Around!, Marquet told the incredible story of abandoning command-and-control leadership on his submarine and empowering his crew to turn the worst performing submarine to the best performer in the fleet. Now, with Leadership is Language he gives businesspeople the tools they need to achieve such transformational leadership in their organizations.

This book could probably be less than an hour long if the author didn't keep repeating himself using slightly different words. Additionally, many of the examples used are not thoroughly analyzed and are instead examined just enough support the authors claims. This is sloppy and superficial writing. If you are really interested in the topic, I would recommend finding a good synopsis of the book that will give you the key points in a few minutes and save yourself several painful hours of listening to this.
