"Essential for current and aspiring leaders"

"I highly recommend this book. It is suitable both for current leaders looking for motivation or improvement as well as for aspiring leaders, and is not limited to the military.   There are many memorable and interesting stories and leadership lessons here, learned while growing up and throughout a career. Dr. Burl is practical, approachable, and relatable, and has a way of telling a story that engages and stays with you." Five Star Review by Vicki W. of Inspired, Not Retired
