"Leonard Pellicer is more believable than many authors because he practices what he preaches. This book represents a gift from someone who shows us that leading and caring go hand in hand. I have skimmed through all too many books on leadership. Most don't speak to me. This one got my attention. Through a rich collection of anecdotes and stories, rather than pronouncements and recipes, I know it will grab yours."
—From the Foreword by Terrence E. Deal
"Pellicer reminds educators why we entered the education field in the first place. He has hit the proverbial nail on its head, and I highly encourage all graduate schools of education and all teacher leaders to make this book required reading!"
—Candace Bower, Instructor
New York State Teacher Center Leadership Academy
"This book is addictive. It has a very personal feel to it, as if the author is talking to the reader."
—Kathe Stanley, Art Teacher

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author's personal stories were realistic, which made his points easy to envision. I am thankful for the privilege of adding this to my library."
