This is the book I wish I had read first regarding leadership. The essays inside this book tackle the topic from a variety of angles and each are well thought out and applicable to any facet of life. The principles and counsel found here have dominated the way I percieve my relationships with others for years and positively influenced those relationships. I have begun giving it away as gifts to those I hope will similarly benefit from it. This book should be the base of knowledge taught to create leaders who don't micro manage, are qualified to teach and train competently, and who can be trusted to act in an honorable manner.
This is truly an outstanding book on applied leadership. While written from a military point of view, the leadership techniques and methods are easy to apply to everyday life within any organization. I will be applying the knowledge and wisdom gleaned from this superb book to the church where I am associate pastor. Much of the information will filter into my personal life as well and I see great benefits for myself, my family and friends. If you desire to grow as a leader make sure to read this book first. Great work Major Kolenda!

This book is an absolute must have for any military leader, regardless of rank. Chris Kolenda takes leadership to the next level and challenges readers to expand their beliefs about the most precious art of our time. By reading this book, you will not only learn more about leadership, but of yourself as well. Every leader should have this book in his kit bag. It's the best collection of thoughts on leadership I have ever read.
