"Our schools need leadership that challenges the imaginations of our students and teachers. They need leadership that can uncover the liberating opportunities concealed within daunting challenges-this is the defining ability of American genius. This is the 'generative leadership' we come to understand so clearly in this powerful and concise volume."
-From the Foreword by Senator John H. Glenn
