    How to be a leader

    This book should be required reading for all military officers and business people. The protagonist, Lieutenant Charles Wilkes shows us how to lead: Promote yourself. The world will never recognize your important contributions unless you ceaselessly point them out. Ignore the long-standing traditions of your organization. Obviously, these petty confining rules were not meant to apply to you. Micromanage. Always remember that your subordinates cannot be trusted with any decisions, no matter how trivial. Be quick to to punish failure. When a subordinate fails in a task, as inevitably will happen due to his cravenness and incompetence, punish him harshly and publicly. Never praise success. Any success is entirely due to your prescience and courage in making executive decisions. In case of genuine danger, faint. Whatever the problem is will be gone when you wake up, whether that be here or in the hereafter. Beware of cabals. Your enemies are always scheming against you. Curry favor with your superiors. It is critical to fawn over your superiors and make them think you are their toady, even as you ignore their ridiculous orders.
