This paper compares the leadership styles and abilities of King Saul and King David and explains how they were different as well as why it is King David's reign that is considered the golden era of the Kingdom of Israel.

From the Paper:

"It is almost as if, and maybe there is some reality in it, that Saul had a dual personality. One which could love God with all his heart, but then another that was fanatical enough to kill others for no real reason, or disobey God so radically. One moment he could be proud of David, the next he would be jealous enough to kill him. Today he would be called pathological since he was abnormally defensive and over-reactive. He had the potential to be a great leader one that Israel and Heaven could be perpetually proud but instead he became a terrible figure who died a rejected man at his own hand, a victim of his own self-will."
