This book specializes in the attribute of “leadership.” The book is a product of his research on the best teams. The author dug into many teams from all kinds of sports and made a list of sixteen teams. When he studied the matter further, he found the teams had one common factor, an outlier captain! These captains preferred to work in the shadows, they had no impressive talents to show off and were awkward around the edges, but were the driving factors for their teams. That revelation led him to write this book.
