Firstly, because it focuses more on the human side than on the concept of business, which allows easy reading and understanding; then, because it reveals the main coordinates after that are build the character and skills of the leaders, highlighting what it is important for them to increase their influence.
Just as doctors must unthread the tangly threads of the illness, to know what questions to ask the patients to recognize the subtle physical clues and identify tests that could ultimately lead to the perfect diagnosis - so you have to unthread the way you can get the best results, to unlock your leadership potential and, ultimately, to operate at maximum capacity.
