Overview

Over the course of his short life, Michael Patrick Murphy came to personify three critically important pillars of leadership. First, before you can lead, you must positively influence others. Second, you must develop an unshakable moral character. Third, you must always act with integrity consistent with that character… an integrity and character that transcends position-only leadership and provides the all-important moral authority to lead. On June 28, 2005 LT Michael P. Murphy faced two profound moral leadership questions; the first after capturing three civilian non-combatants. The second to deliberately put himself in the enemy’s direct line of fire in a final effort to get help for his men. How Michael P. Murphy chose to answer those two questions will forever separate him from those he fought. This book details the leadership traits of the most celebrated Medal of Honor recipient since World War II.

Editorial Reviews

Tom D
I bought "Heart of a Lion" because I'm a fan of military history and followed the books on Operation Red Wings. What I got was much more than another book about Navy SEALs.

"Heart of a Lion" is a much needed compass that points to the true north of integrity and honor. It challenges us to examine ourselves, our values and our motives. "Heart of a Lion" provides leadership lessons for Fortune 500 CEO's and teenagers trying to moderate the influences of peer pressure.
