Editorial Reviews

Army War College Foundation Press
Since ancient times, outstanding Leadership has seized, excited and motivated peoples to reach for goals which they may not have even dared to dream about on their own. No political order, economic enterprise, or military organization has ever achieved significant success, or even survived, without it. Thus, the Leadership phenomenon has come to be recognized as vital to the life and growth of mankind. Christopher Kolenda’s book has been written while he was a member of the History Department at the United States Military Academy at West Point. To bring us this landmark work he has assembled contributions from some of the most thoughtful minds and practitioners of The Warrior’s Art which the American military has to offer. Shunning more conventional approaches, Kolenda and his colleagues attack the heart of Leadership from the avenues of theory, history and contemporary experience. Collectively, the work is a bold, fresh and broad-scale examination and analysis of the single most critical factor in what makes groups drive for success in the face of daunting resistance. It is a volume of monumental significance.

    Trumps any other leadership book I have read.

    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.

    Best book on leadership

    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!
