    Well Composed: A Guide to Effective Composition and Transformational Leadership provides students with an innovative approach to English composition and rhetoric. The book uniquely challenges students to develop writing skills and delve into the study of the foundational concepts in transformational leadership. Throughout, students are encouraged to introspectively examine their own level of leadership and self-leadership.

    The opening chapter, a transformational leadership rudimentary guide, informs students of the principles and components of transformational leadership. Chapter 2 serves as a writing manual that focuses on composition development, featuring explanations of the patterns of development, the composition process from word to essay, and offering samples and visual formats of each pattern. The third chapter introduces students to the basics of argumentation and analysis.

    Each of the remaining chapters focuses on various aspects of transformational leadership including mindfulness, confidence, self-discipline, grit, emotional intelligence, diplomacy, and character, granting opportunity for students to examine some of America's notable leaders against the backdrop of transformational leadership. With each chapter providing collaboration and composition opportunities, as well as class activities designed to raise students' transformational leadership awareness, the lessons sharpen students' written, speech, critical thinking, and collaboration skills and help them develop their voices.

    Well Composed is an essential writing text that encourages students' expression, introspection, and retrospection. It is an ideal textbook for courses in English composition, rhetoric, and college writing, and serves as a profound transformational leadership primer.
