"Nelson was both a complex and a modern leader and an understanding of his career sheds new light on methods of leadership and management. In Nelson's Way Jones and Gosling reveal that rare combination: an outstandingly diligent manager and an inspiring leader. Nelson cared for individuals and took a real interest in their lives. He had an ability to build confidence and arouse ambition and commitment in all around him. He was dedicated to his profession. He was possessed of twin passions: the call of duty and for Emma Hamilton, the love of his life, and found difficulty balancing the two.".
