    On Patton's Own

    The book reveals the brilliant, coarse and own view of Patton's leadership lessons applied to set objectives, goals and to be an effective coach and mentor in business. As Patton saw it, a leader cannot lead by remote control,ensconced in an office. An on-site presence is always called for, the object being not only to see the situation for yourself, but to be seen by the people you lead.

    A master of organization and motivation

    Most of the world views General George S. Patton as an egotistical, vane, power hungry, bloodthirsty warmonger. What he really was was probably the greatest motivator, planner, organizer, tactician and stategist the US Army has ever produced. Through a lifetime of study and application, Patton amassed a core set of practices and techniques that successfully and smoothly transform into the business world. Mr. Axelrod reviews these precepts and expands on their application to real-world business needs. Any business manager would be well advised to study these methods to become a more effective leader, and realize what the General always viewed as the final objective: To Win!

    As good as a book on leadership as I have read on leadership

    This book condenses the essential Patton into easily digestible and rememberable pieces. A must read for the corporate soldier of today.
