In this remarkable book, hailed by CEOs, politicians, coaches, and college presidents alike, Donald T. Phillips examines Lincoln's effective leadership style. As he explores the President's diverse management skills, he demonstrates how you can succeed with them in today's complex world.

When Lincoln took the oath of office in 1861, the Confederate States had already seceded from the Union. Even though his own advisers expected him to fail, he eventually reunited the embattled states with uncommon good sense. Using historical anecdotes, speeches, and Lincoln's own letters, the author shares the President's practical managerial strategies: seize the initiative, wage only one war at a time, encourage risk-taking while promoting job security, circulate among the troops, and more.

With this compelling portrait, Donald T. Phillips reveals Lincoln as one of the world's most outstanding leaders. Nelson Runger's thought-provoking narration will motivate you to influence others in the same quiet way.

    " The book is just decent. I would not say this is a "must read" by any means. If you want a leadership book, I would look first to John C. Maxwell, then Kenneth Blancard. Read all their books, and if you really just like the subject of leadership and Lincoln, give this a shot. "

    " 3.5. Good points, but author using Lincoln to sell his opinions "

    " This is one I wish I had read instead of listened to. I loved learning more about Lincoln and his character and leadership. If I had read the paper copy I would have been underlining as I went. "
