Item Description...
Overview
Major General Joseph P. Franklin (ret.) believes almost everything that he is as an adult can be traced back to his days at West Point, where he was not only a cadet but an instructor, football coach, and eventually Commandant of Cadets. U.S. Military Academy graduates are found at the highest levels in every walk of life: military, education, business, medicine, law, and government. "But," says Franklin, "you don't have to graduate from the U.S. Military Academy to embrace its ideals or to benefit from the wisdom that is taught there. Competent, even inspiring, leadership is within the grasp of nearly everyone." The principles of leadership-including Duty, Honor, Faith, Courage, Perseverance, Confidence, Approachability, Adaptability, Compassion, and Vision-can be internalized and polished to one's own level of expertise and ambition. "I have known Joe Franklin, since the late 1970s, when I coached at West Point and he was the Commandant of Cadets. General Joe is well-known by the many people whose lives he has touched as a truly thoughtful, approachable, and compassionate human being. He has written a very readable book using examples drawn from his personal experience to illustrate key principles of leadership, a subject I have studied and practiced for most of my adult life. His simple, honest, easy to understand text is a welcome addition to the references available to leaders, young and old alike. This book will definitely help you become a better leader. The General is one of the best ever!" - Mike "Coach K" Kryzewski, Duke University Basketball Coach

Reviews - What do our customers think?
True Leadership Principles  Dec 29, 2009
This should be required reading for all leaders or people aspiring to become leaders. The principles taught and explained in detail are true. In many ways this book is a slap in the face to wannabe leaders. While you read the book, it will become clear who the true leaders are and why. If you want to be a true and inspirational leader, you must read this book and actively apply it's principles.
 
"Ten Hut!!" -- The Leader's Toolbox  Feb 7, 2008
Author Joe Franklin makes a compelling case that leadership is as much "caught as taught." That it, you probably can't learn it just by reading books. A former West Pointer, he sees the US Military Academy as an ultimate laboratory for grooming leaders and it is hard to argue with that.

Each chapter focuses on one aspect of leadership. Critics may chide that it sounds like a list of Boy Scout virtues. Real world examples - sometimes a bit too self-congratulatory - illustrate the points that Franklin develops.

Mostly we know what it takes to be a good leader. The kicker is doing it! No book can do that for you but Franklin's book is a motivational and instructive blast for those who are looking to hone their leadership skills in any arena - government, military, business, private life, whatever. A worthwhile book!
 
Excellent and inspiring  Nov 6, 2007
In a very straightforward manner, the General builds a solid case for adhering to these principles. It's no wonder he was so successful in all his many undertakings.
 
Building Leaders The West Point Way  Sep 20, 2007
Great book, stimulating, practical, and clearly written. The author balances inspirational stories with theoretical foundations so the reader is able to incorporate new ideas into the everyday world of management and teaching.
 
Another great Leadership Book.  Aug 31, 2007
I was reading Leadership: Past, Present & Future by Carlos M. Rivera and he talks about West Point, so I wanted to know more about West Point and Leadership and this is a great book.
Every Leader should get both books.
5 Star book.
A keeper.
