Item Description...
From the boardroom to the Beltway, questions of character are making the headlines. Does it matter what kind of person you are if you're doing a good job? In this environment of moral ambivalence, does character count for anything? You bet it does. In this intriguing new book, a successful businessman and former West Point professor argue that you can never escape your character. With inspiring stories, the authors use lessons from military history to explain why when all else is equal, the better person will always win. Using historical accounts from Napoleon to the jungles of Vietnam, you'll learn the value of good character in your career, your relationships, and your everyday life. A Question of Character harks back to the original American spirit of honesty, integrity, ingenuity and perseverance. From presidents to generals to the man in the street, character is an issue that we cannot afford to neglect. This thought-provoking book will help settle our nation's debate over the character of its leaders as it helps to repair the tears in the moral fabric of America.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
What a great book!  Nov 20, 2000
I never thought of reading about military history until I read this book! Gaebelein brilliantly uses stories of individuals to drive home the points he and Simmons make about character. Great for business travelers and families alike!
 
A Companion to Sun Tzu's "The Art of War"  Aug 1, 2000
This is an excellent book, a must read for people in leadership positions. It provides a superb complement to Sun Tzu ("The Art of War"). The examples are far from what might be expected.
 
A Question of Character: Life Lessons to Learn from Military  Jul 8, 2000
Excellent Book! This book is well written and a pleasure to read. The authors take a challenging topic--the value of good character--and very clearly demonstrate through historical examples the benefits of developing this foundation for good leadership. They use great examples that are intertwined and continuously reinforce the points being made. This is a compelling and inspiring book about leadership, not history.
 
IT'S NOT ALWAYS TECHNOLOGY THAT WINS THE BATTLE !  Jan 26, 1999
NOT REALLY A FAN OF MILITARY HISTORY, BUT FOUND THE EARLY RELEASE ON THIS BOOK--LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN. IT WAS GREAT TO SEE FAMOUS PEOPLE IN HISTORY WIN BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER, NOT JUST BY THE COLOR OF THEIR MONEY OR TOYS !

WE SEE THE FAILURES OF CHARACTER EVERYWHERE TODAY, THIS WAS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR..

 
Putting history to practical business use  Dec 28, 1998
Maybe if history was taught with this kind of flare in high school we all would have paid closer attention. However, the thrust of this book is not a history lesson but practical business advice that can be garnered from the success and failures of others in certain historical events. The one element that makes itself clear through this book (which is a quick read with some heavy thoughts) is that character is timeless and is what ultimately determines the success or failure of an individual or organization. "Character" is a useful book no matter what stage of your career you are in as it provides a look into common human characteristics that often confirm one's own findings or identifies potential shortcomings that may not be so visible. My only criticism is that some of the historical content can be hard to follow at times. The main value I see in this book is that it draws lessons from substance.
