This book is marked as CLEARANCE. Supplies are very limited. Price subject to availability, normal pricing will resume once we sell out. Which we may already have.
This impressive meditation on leadership and character uses the lives of ten famous naval commanders as its foundation. The author, a former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, features successful but imperfect men, and some who were deeply flawed. He teases out important themes through their actions, however–including that there is an art to knowing when to listen to shipmates and when to turn a blind eye, that serving your reputation is a poor substitute for serving your character, and that taking time to read and reflect is not a luxury, but a necessity.
