A must-have source of inspiration for leaders Feb 23, 2002
Colonel Jimmie Coy has searched far and wide to find the thoughts of people who know how to lead under the most difficult of circumstances. In the post Sept-11 world, honor and integrity are replacing selfishness and convenience in the forefront of the American conscience. The thoughts by the leaders quoted in this book clearly show what it took for ordinary people to do the right thing under extraordinary pressure. Not surprisingly, a substantial portion of the book is focused on military leadership. Interestingly, the lessons learned from military leaders is a topic woefully lacking in most current non-military leadership publications. Even so, Colonel Coy composes some engaging sections on political, social and religious leaders. This is an inspiring book that should be a part of any leader's library.
