From the bedtime story by L. Frank Baum to the classic 1939 film, no story has captured the imaginations of generations of children — and adults — like The Wizard of Oz. The story of Dorothy’s journey through Oz, the colorful characters, places, songs, and dialogue have permeated popular culture around the world. The contributors to this volume take a very close look at The Wizard of Oz and ask the tough questions about this wonderful tale. They wonder if someone can possess a virtue without knowing it, and if the realm of Oz was really the dream or if Kansas was the dream. Why does water melt the Wicked Witch of the West and why does Toto seem to know what the other characters can’t seem to figure out? The articles included tackle these compelling questions and more, encouraging readers to have discussions of their own.

The concept and practice of leadership is widely talked about, written about, studied, researched, discussed (and perhaps cussed), admired, imitated, envied, and often disregarded, but it is still an enigma in the human realm. We know it when we see it but we can’t adequately define it or “package” it. Still, there are some things we can say about leadership that are veritable truths, which we call “axioms” that can help us focus on the subject so we can become better leaders. Winning Wizard’s Leadership Axioms for Career Progression and Everyday Living is a compendium of 417 such axioms that address the skills, attributes, values, traits, and qualities of current and aspirational leaders. “Winning Wizard” is a retired chief executive officer of a major international organization who has been granted emeritus status, and has been given an office on the top floor Stratospheric Lounge, so he is available to organizational constituents when called upon. Redael is a lower level manager in the organization who aspires to top management and a leadership position not only in the firm, but in the industry and the world community. Redael realizes “Winning Wizard” can be a valuable mentor, and meets with the sage to get some sound advice and guidance to help scale the organization’s mountain to its apex. Leadership axioms include: • Leaders know it’s not who you are that’s important, but it’s what you do that’s most important! • Leaders conceive of themselves as leaders, carry themselves as leaders, and conduct themselves as leaders. • Leaders prefer workhorses to show horses. The insights and provocative thoughts compiled in this book will make you a (better) leader if you take them to heart.

THE WIZARD OF WISHES plays the “three magical wishes” theme, but with a few strange twists. Readers (and listeners) may have fun following the rainbow-coded clues. Could the story have happened? No, you say? Don’t be too sure. THE GOLDEN DEER illustrates the quality of metta, or loving kindness. This rhymed version is adapted from Ten Jataka Stories, I.B. Horner (Bangkok, 1974). A prose retelling, “Banyan,” appears in Twenty Jataka Tales, Noor Inayat Khan (Rochester, Vermont, 1975); another, “The Banyan Deer,” in The Hungry Tigress, Rafe Martin (Berkeley, California, 1990). A LITTLE MAGIC can be read as an old-fashioned fairy tale that takes place in an imaginary land. But it can also be seen as a subtly inspirational ghost story. Or even a universal, but Eastern-leaning, spiritual teaching.
