LEADERSHIP cannot be taught, but one can be taught about leadership. There are many sources from which one can learn. One of those sources is animals. We can learn many lessons from the animals. And one aspect that is rich with examples is LEADERSHIP. Human leadership is about getting people to do what you want them to do, even when they might want to do otherwise. It is about encouraging, convincing, exhorting, and motivating. Animals are remarkably adept at achieving this amongst their own kind. Animals demonstrate very clearly the central message that leadership is a process. It is not a set of characteristics, it is not charisma, it is not a position, it is not a role. It is a process-a process involving people. It is about those who lead and those who are led. It is about those who challenge and those who accept. Animals provide many and varied lessons in leadership. They exhibit understanding, collaboration, and sensitivities that human leaders could well emulate. Read about some of these lessons in this fascinating book. ASHLEY GOLDSWORTHY is in a unique position to write a book on Leadership. In a career spanning over 55 years he has been CEO of Australia's largest construction company; a retail bank; the Australian Computer Society; deputy to the CEO of a large insurance company; chairman of an international construction company; Director of Economic Statistics for the Australian Government; Dean of the Business School at Australia's first private university; one of Australia's first Professors of Leadership; Federal President of the Liberal Party of Australia; World President of the International Federation for Information Processing; director of one of Australia's largest casinos; founding chairman of a university Centre for International Research on Communication and Information Technologies; chairman/director of performing arts companies in ballet, theatre and circus; chairman of several companies ranging across human resources, accounting, financial services, healthcare, computer systems, and vocational education and training. He has degrees in accounting, business, public administration, science, and theology.

The first edition of this book has been recognized as the standard reference on biological effects of electric and magnetic fields from DC to microwaves. But much has changed in this science since the book's original publication in 1986. With contributions from eighteen leading researchers, this latest edition includes authoritative discussions of many new developments and will quickly become the new, must-have resource handbook. Dielectric properties of biological tissue are thoroughly examined, followed by chapters on physical mechanisms and biological effects of static and extremely low frequency magnetic fields. New chapters on topics that were treated very briefly in the first edition now receive extensive treatment. These topics include electric and magnetic fields for bone and soft tissue repair, electroporation, and epidemiology of ELF health effects. The chapter on computer methods for predicting field intensity has been substantially revised to describe new numerical techniques developed within the last few years and includes calculations of power absorbed in the human head from cellular telephones. The chapter discussing experimental results on RF interaction with living matter now contains information on effects of very high power, very short duration pulses. A new appendix on safety standards is based on the latest publications of governmental, as well as quasi-governmental organizations (such as the U.S. Council on Radiation Protection) in the United States, Europe, and Australia. With all its revisions, this updated version of the CRC Handbook of Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields provides the most comprehensive overview available of this rapidly changing science.
