What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"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

"The world has long admired JFK's style and grace. Now John A. Barnes shows us how JFK's large personality and skills made him a beloved leader. Barnes moves beyond the image to reveal new layers of shrewdness and sense, offering timeless lessons for today." — Steven F. Hayward, author of Churchill on Leadership and The Age of Reagan"
