RUMSFELD’S RULES: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War, and Life (2013)

Several years ago, I learned about Donald Rumsfeld’s habit of working most of the day at a standing desk. I was immediately intrigued by his work 0062272853_bethic, passion to make a difference in the lives of people, and his love for his country. Since then, I’ve seen several interviews with the former Secretary of Defense. Each time I’m impressed with his ability to articulate conservative ideas and his insight into leadership.

Rumsfeld’s Rules: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War, and Life is a rich resource, packed with pithy wisdom from a great American leader.  Rumsfeld shares leadership lessons from both the private and public sectors and gives readers an inside look at his time as Chief of Staff under president Ford and Secretary of Defense under President Bush.

Readers will be refreshed with Rumsfeld’s transparent approach.  They will be encouraged with his no-nonsense approach to leadership.  There’s something for everyone here.  Liberals – set your politics aside and learn from an American patriot!
