Following his BusinessWeek bestsellers Elizabeth I, CEO and Patton on Leadership comes a new and perfect subject for Alan Axelrod's innovative format: Winston Churchill, the quintessential leader of the 20th century. Churchill skillfully converted crisis into victory, making the boldest of visions seem attainable; even though he sometimes failed audaciously, he embraced his errors and used them to become stronger. Axelrod looks at this much-studied figure in a way nobody has before: he explores 25 key facets of Churchill's leadership style and decision-making from his early years as a junior cavalry officer and journalist to his role throughout WWII and demonstrates how he was able to overcome near-impossible obstacles. Fluidly and engagingly written, each lesson is enlivened with a vivid vignette from Churchill's life. As always, Axelrod's penetrating analysis will instruct, inspire, and encourage those who lead business enterprises, large and small.

Excellent correlation drawn from a distinguished man's military/civic experience of a lifetime (around the turn of the 20th Century) to how the very practical, 25 lessons apply to modern day CEO or otherwise human/business leadership (areas of thought, reason, application). . [ Audiobook listening note: the book starts right off with a basic recap of Churchill's lifeline (48 minutes).Then formally begins & ends the 7.5 hour book with Chapter/Lesson 1 - 25. There is no formal forward, epilogue, etc.]
