Overview

Robert E. Lee was a leader of extraordinary talents who inspired an out-gunned, out-manned army to legendary heights. The man who Teddy Roosevelt called "the very greatest of all the great captains that the English-speaking peoples have brought forth," lived a life that was a model for anyone who seeks to shoulder the profound responsibility of leading others. Robert E. Lee on Leadership is the first book to present Lee's story in a way that today's business leaders and managers can use to achieve executive success. Author H. W. Crocker III illustrates the general's character, vision, and indomitable spirit in a page-turning narrative that captures the essence of true leadership. This book includes chapters that apply Lee's executive acumen to the tough battlefield of today's marketplace.

Robert E. Lee on Leadership is a great book! I have been a student on the subject of Robert E. Lee for years. I have developed my own insights on this quintessential American, however, H. W. Crocker III (Ed Goldman is not the author) provides insight that is not provided in many of the texts in my library pertaining to RE Lee. A must buy book.

A must read for 'corporate world' managers. Anyone who thinks they know how to manage people or run a business should read this book.

It might change the way you look at life! Robert E. Lee was not only a great man who almost accomplished the impossible but he was also the ultimate teacher on being a graceful leader who can win and loose with humility.
