John F. Kennedy on Leadership: The Lessons and Legacy of a President
Perhaps no figure in recent memory more fully personifies leadership than President John F. Kennedy. Leading the United States in a time of unprecedented turbulence, challenge and opportunity, Kennedy led his administration (and the country) with a courage and determination that even his harshest critics respected.John F. Kennedy on Leadership identifies eleven core principles that made Kennedy, both before and during his presidency, a unique and dominant force who would serve as the standard by which future leaders would measure themselves--and by which they would be judged. Current and aspiring leaders would do well to adopt these principles, which include questioning the status quo, turning liabilities into pluses, making decisions, presenting an idealized view of what the future can be, finding your own "Bobby" and being the coolest person in the room.John F. Kennedy on Leadership doesn't shy away from the well-documented darker side of Kennedy's life: the seemingly nonstop parade of lovers and the chronic and multiple illnesses. Every leader faces personal challenges that affect the ability to lead. This book shows how legendary leadership can exist even in the face of substantial limitations.

John F. Kennedy on leadership: the lessons and legacy of a presidentUser Review - Book Verdict
Following up on Ulysses Grant on Leadership, journalist Barnes offers 12 concept-based chapters that draw on the life and presidency of JFK. "Vision" centers on the "Ask Not..." inaugural address; "Resilience" touches on the West Virgina primary (where JFK found a way around "the Catholic issue" to score an upset victory); "Team Building" looks at the JFK-RFK relationship and at Kennedy's crack staff of advisors (as well as when he did and didn't listen to them). Barnes gets to the anecdotal material quickly enough in each chapter to keep his rather thin concepts from buckling, and he presents it clearly and without jingoism. And Barnes does not back away from "Miscalculations and Misjudgements" and "Faults and Failings." The result is suggestive, if not overly inspiring.

This wasn't so much a leadership book as it was a history book from a leadership perspective. It was still an interesting story though and I picked up some facts I did not know.
