Published in 2013, I read this book cover-to-cover in two sittings. It is loaded with practical and thoughtful leadership advice from one of the most experienced and challenging leaders of our time. The advice is captured in pearls of wisdom from others with real life examples from his remarkable career.

Rumsfeld has quite a lot to offer in this gem of a book. I guarantee you will find some compelling thoughts that will enable you to immediately lift your leadership profile.
Finally, I have known Don Rumsfeld for a long time. He is a life-long learner. He has learned from some amazing experiences with some of the most amazing people on the planet over the past 80 years. I have learned a lot from him. You can, too.
