A sage manual from a member of one of the best organized and best led organizations in society: the U.S. military. One may think those in the military would take a very iron fisted approach to leadership, but actually the opposite is true. At times, even an egalitarian approach. A very humble and inspiring way of approaching leadership which to boost sounds like an effective way.
