Every organization needs good leadership in order to win against the competition. Through his own personal story and those of nine other Rangers, Barber illuminates fundamental lessons about what it really takes to win. These first-person accounts of trial and triumph highlight the importance and the inherent truth of the Army’s most fundamental leadership principles: seeking and taking responsibility for your actions, and knowing yourself and seeking self-improvement. Adhering to those principles—and putting them at the core of your organization—will push you and your company to do more and do it better.

User Review  - Neal Sivula - Goodreads

Excellent book, having been through ranger school made it easier for me to relate to the stories, I'm not sure if they would make as much sense to a non-Ranger. Read full review
