Inc. Magazine 800-CEO-READ Names Top Business Books for 2010, Naming LOVE LEADERSHIP by John Hope Bryant to the 4th Spot

Inspirational Work by the founder of Operation HOPE provides inspiration to government leaders,
educators, executives, and entrepreneurs globally

LOS ANGELES—May 11, 2011—Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO John Hope Bryant’s business bestselling book LOVE LEADERSHIP: The New Way to Lead in a Fear-Based World (Jossey-Bass), took the 4th spot on the Inc. Magazine 800-CEO-READ top selling business books list for 2010. The bestsellers for 2010 were chosen based on the numbers for the entire year, giving weight to both total sales and how long each book stayed on the list.

LOVE LEADERSHIP serves as a beacon for new executive influence, demonstrating how leading with love and respect and not fear creates success in business and in life. It makes the case that the best way to get ahead is to figure out what you have to give. The book, aimed at a new generation of leaders, is extremely relevant and topical as the global economy struggles to recover from the recent global crisis.

LOVE LEADERSHIP draws on Bryant’s remarkable success story and on interviews with thirty love-based leaders such as former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Bill George, HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Ambassador Andrew Young, and some of the last book interviews with the late Secretary Jack Kemp and the late civil rights icon Dr. Dorothy I. Height.
