LRQ explains the Eight Qualities of Leadership Rightness and the Twelve Skills of Leadership Readiness. Mr. Llewellyn also provides interesting research on “Advice for a New Supervisor.” Each chapter ends with a Technical Analog on Life and Leadership, a scientific principle that promotes improved “boss-hood.”

“Recovering Quantoid hits the “sweet spot” in filling a huge and previously ignored need: Helping engineers, accountants, craft people, and other quantitatively skilled professionals become good bosses. This is a mini-MBA for both ‘quantoids’ and ‘normals’ alike.”
“Recovering Quantoid has made a major contribution in helping both quantoids and the rest of us become better leaders in business or whatever avenue we pursue. A fun read, too, and not a single vampire!”
“Recovering Quantoid meets an unmet need. In it, Bob puts in writing what he has practiced and taught very successfully for many years. I wish all the people who worked in my areas had this two decades ago. Frankly, I wish I had it three decades ago.”
“Accountants have a natural tendency to immerse themselves in the numbers and often neglect the larger elements of leadership. This book provides an outstanding framework for the more important duties inherent in administration and management. I strongly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.”
“I have known Bob and his ability to teach difficult topics of business for fifteen years. I now know he can write about them, too. This is full of practical principles and, like his classes, he made it fun and interesting. This is something the engineering profession has needed.
“Bob's book is a must for people transitioning from numbers work into management. I plan to introduce it to clients in my career-counseling practice who are going through such a transition. In addition, Bob's treatment of Career Concepts, developed by my late husband, Dr. Michael Driver, is thorough and a testament to the power of Career Concepts--not only for recovering quantoids, but for all of us!”
