Author Miles Anthony Smithabout this book: The inspiration for my book Why Leadership Sucks was 100% leadership perspiration...blood, sweat, and tears. For the most part, I learned through the school of hard knocks, and I struggled and wondered why leadership sucks. I spent many hours gleaning what I could from business books and other experienced leaders I admired, and what I found is that leadership isn't about a power trip, money, prestige, or fame. In the trenches of leadership, it sucks! Not just a bit, but a lot.

Once I came to this realization, as happens to all of us eventually, I recognized that choosing to lead from a position of serving those that work for me was incredibly worthwhile and meaningful, even if that meant swallowing the distaste of making the tough decisions when the buck stops here. This book is meant to encourage us that there is hope in leading others, just not in the old-school, top-down, dictatorial, do-it-my-way style that has been prevalent since the end of World War II.

And I have a burning passion to help my generation...Generation X and Generation Y (Millenials) learn from my journey thus far. I feel privileged to have had many opportunities to lead at a younger age than many of my peers and want to share that knowledge I have gained, so other leaders can grow further faster.

I invite you to join me on our leadership journey together.
