This mostly undiscovered book on the many facets of leadership should be required for military and para-military supervisors and commanders. It provides insights from the ages about leading people to achieve goals. However, any leader could profit from the thoughts compiled by Robert Fitton. I count it as the mainstay of my professional and personal library. From the Greek and Roman generals to Patton and Douglas MacArthur, the great quotes and the great speeches are provided, not only for the inspiration of the thoughts, but as lessons to be applied. I started underlining my favorites, only to find that I had underlined everything in the first chapter! I wish I could talk to Mr. Fitton, to see if his efforts are a result of his own character, or does he, like me, only wish he was as inspirational as those from whom he borrows thoughts. If you ever find this book in some out-of-the place, buy it. There is no other like it.
