A book: The Leadership Mystique – a user's manual for the human enterprise by MK de Vries (Prentice Hall 2001) is a fascinating read. I have a piece: Leadership and Management .

Make a lot of walks to get healthy and don't read that much but save yourself some until you're grown up – there came the advice from the Giant (Albert Einstein; 1879 – 1955) to his young son.
