I'm a real fan of leadership books, and this is one of the best I've read. I just got this book a few days ago, and blazed right through it. It's a quick read, concise, but packed with good stuff. The cover is a bit misleading. This is NOT an adaptation of the Army Leadership Manual. The authors interpret the manual and explain how the Army's leadership principles apply all the time, everywhere-in business as well as the military. In the Army, leaders need to lead men into battle, and keep them cohesive in the face of danger and death. How do you do that? It's not about shouting orders, the book makes clear. It's about taking responsibility and leading from the front, sharing risks with your people, and forging your own character so that you deserve to lead. This book shows you how to do that, and how that kind of leadership works just as well in business. It doesn't make this kind of leadership sound easy, because its not. But it does show that if you're willing to do the work and adopt the discipline, you can be a leader. There is nothing political about the book, but when I finished reading it, I couldn't help thinking that the current occupant of the White House should read it. Then he would know what REAL leadership is all about.
