What People are Saying About This
"John F. Kennedy defied many in his own party to advocate one of the largest tax cuts in history in order to fulfill his promise to 'get the country moving again.' That's just one example of how JFK was not afraid to disregard the conventional wisdom and form his own opinions about issues, a skill no business executive can afford to be without. In addition to providing invaluable insights on Kennedy's management approach, John Barnes's elegant style makes John F. Kennedy on Leadership a joy to read." Lawrence Kudlow, CNBC co-host, "Kudlow & Cramer" and CEO of Kudlow and Company, LLC
