Overview

The theme of the book is based on Dr. Harper's conviction that "Leaders are born to be made." The excellent FIT of knowledge on leadership, real-life personal experiences, and conscientious learning makes the book unique because it reflects Dr. Harper's life journey from despair to heights of professional riches, real life application of leadership knowledge and research-based personal learning in career advancements, and experiences.

The book is a practical guide for advancement in personal and professional life with the profound emphasis that greatness comes from within. Focusing on the word "hustler," which he defines as "an enterprising person determined to succeed," Dr. Harper's use of acronyms, like A.G.I.L.E. L.E.A.D.E.R.S.H.I.P. with a G.R.I.P., pulls the busy reader in and keeps them interested to see how he will unveil the words and meanings behind the acronyms.

With subtitles such as From hell to Yale, The Bigger the Headache the Bigger the Pill, his Careful Constant Compassionate delivery allows the reader to not only embrace his principles of leadership and management-but to also connect with him on a personal level as he shares his journey from growing up as an at-risk youth (statistic) in heavily crime-ridden areas shinning shoes, or Street hustler, to becoming a global scholar-practitioner, or Strategic hustler, using the letters in the book's title to articulate world-class leadership behaviors and management practices learned along the way. The reader gets a global lesson as the discussion includes enlightening stories about his colleagues-men and women-from all walks of life and countries such as Columbia, Pakistan, India, United Kingdom, Africa, along with the United States.

This logical knowledge will attract readers from all walks of life who are aspiring to achieve excellence personally, academically or professionally. Dr. Harper brings an array of life, style, and personality to the subjects of leadership and management. The communication style is an effective blend of professionalism and authority with down-to-earth language and easy-to-understand user-friendly examples to illustrate important points. The anecdotes about his sports experiences are particularly effective at sustaining the reader's interest while teaching a memorable lesson.

The book will ignite people to laugh, love, learn, and lead!
