A thought-provoking collection of views on leadership April 26 1999
By Tina Lewis Rowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what it advertises. Maybe 5,000 quotes from and about the military divided into 30 or so sections. The sections range from Pride to Glory to Mentallity. This book should be on the shelf of every military officers, nco's and enlisted personel's book rack.
