Add a star if you like war stories
You are buying a leadership book with a trident on the cover… enough said. While it will likely never take a place next to the established cannon of business leadership books, its application of wartime experience to the non-wartime world is interesting and entertaining. Buy the book for the stories, take ownership of everything you do, you will be a better for doing both.
