Editorial Reviews

Computer Designer/Enginner - Gary Forrester
I sincerely believe the book is one that should be read (and studied) by everyone who is put in any position of authority over others. And it should be read twice by anyone who would like to be put into such a position.You have stated in terms that should be clear to all stakeholders, not just what a business ethic and etiquette should be, but how to implement and sustain a clear and safe environment within that business. I wished I had read it 40 years ago.
Web Designer - Buck Sharp
This is fascinating if you're interested in leadership culture and how it impacts the operating safety environment. From the Author's tragic personal experience with casually disregarding (what can seem to be) tedious safety procedure to break downs and analysis of some of the world's deadliest (and avoidable) accidents this book is both gripping and informative from start to finish

Meet the Author

Jeff Espenship graduated from the University of Georgia in 1986. He trained as a USAF fighter pilot and won the coveted "Commanders Trophy" as the overall top graduate of his pilot training class. Jeff also won the pilot training T-38 Talon's "Hard Charger Award" for overall dedication to excellence and training. Jeff flew the venerable A-10 Thunderbolt, also known as the "Warthog". He was stationed with the 18th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Eielson AFB in Fairbanks, Alaska. While there, he qualified as one of the youngest 4-ship flight leaders in the entire squadron. He served as an instructor and was also Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) qualified as well as a Joint Air Attacks (JAAT) team member. While flying, Odie won numerous Top Gun awards for air-to-ground bombing and gunnery. Due to Jeff's outgoing, personable, always smiling personality, his squadron mates gave him his call sign "Odie," aptly named after the popular cartoon Garfield's sidekick. Now, few people know Jeff by his first name.. but simply call him "ODIE." He currently flies as an international airline pilot. Amid his tenure as an airline pilot, Odie also flew a 1943 T-6 "Texan" on the airshow circuit. A tragic accident took the life of his brother. This significant life event ignited the spark that helped Odie create what Target Leadership is today.

    When I first picked up the book, I wondered if it was going to be another boring business book.  This is the first time I can honestly say,  not only did I learn a lot of helpful information to help me create a strategy for organization and implemenatation of operations in my company, but I also was deeply touched by this fresh, humanistic approach to what many times is dull material. The author tells very entertaining stories from his days as a pilot, as well as true stories from actual events in various industries that help illustrate the importance of a critical thought process that people must realize in order to keep companies from failing. What I found the most compelling was the fact that this book may apply to any person, any career, any industry. The information reveals secrets (which are actually common sense truths) to developing an easy to follow plan for a company objective. Often times we forget the importance of being real, facing truth, and communicating thoughts that are not distorted by our own egos and stories that we'd like to believe. Yet, these are basic things that all people need to do well for companies to continue to flourish, and for life to run smoothely. This book helps bring out the awareness of that- a "wake up call" to a mindset, and provides actual steps to keep on track.

You'll be better positioned to achieve what you want in life by applying the lessons in this book.
















    This guy was a USAF pilot (A-10 Warthog) with an loads of experience in the world's most advanced safety culture. So, when he writes about it you can believe it's true.
