In this section, we highlight one of your favorite books, culled from suggestions that SmartBrief on Leadership readers share with us.

Today's recommendation, "Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation" by John Carlin, comes from Lois Melbourne, with this endorsement:

The [greatest] example of leadership earned by giving respect and having faith in people. It should be mandatory reading on leadership book lists.
