How to avoid it?
If you have to edit the quote:
*replace any omitted words with ...
*any words, that you add from yourself, have to be placed in [ ] square brackets
If the quote is longer than two lines, include it in separate paragraph. You no longer have to use quotation marks.
Try to avoid using too many quotations.
You should avoid it, and reach original source.
However, if you decide to do it, make it clear, that you have not read primary source.
In the reference list only include the book you read.
Grout and Fisher(2011, p.10)points out that "you can be appointed a manager but you have to earn your role as leader".
Arendt (1969, cited by Kets de Vries 2006) points out that totalitarian leaders develop ideology, that can be compared to religion.
