The most widely recognized business executive of all time asks the tough questions that America's leaders must address:

What is each of us giving back to our country?

Do we truly love democracy?

Are we too fat and satisfied for our own good?

Why is America addicted to oil?

Do we really care about our children's futures?

Who will save the middle class?

Lee Iacocca believes that leaders are made in times of crisis -- such as today. He has known more leaders than almost anybody else -- including nine U.S. presidents, many heads of state, CEOs of the nation's top corporations, celebrities, and even a pope -- and is uniquely suited to share his wisdom, knowledge, and wit about the leadership of America. Lee Iacocca does not mince words, and in Where Have All the Leaders Gone? he offers his no-nonsense, straight-up assessments of the American politicians most likely to run for president in 2008. He also shares his lessons learned, and issues a call to action to summon Americans back to their roots of hard work, common sense, integrity, generosity, and optimism.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Provocative…timely.” 

    USA Today

  • “The book’s strength lies in Iacocca’s emotional honesty, which shines when he details the reasons he passed on a Presidential run, how he felt when his wife died and his frustration at the poor decisions he’s made during his retirement.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Iacocca presents a brutal analysis of cronyism in Washington, D.C., the abysmal situation in Iraq, and failed policies at home, he is not a pessimist. With a reputation as a straight shooter, he hopes to inspire more young people to vote. This is a surprisingly outspoken take on the pressing need for real leadership in this country.” 


  • “Iacocca’s voice and scrappy personality are a perfect match for his straight-from-the-gut opinions…he conveys a level of emotional engagement that’s perfect for the character of his writing.” 


  • New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

    " I didn't finish the book. The content seemed to be primarily a rant against George Bush. Since Bush is no longer in the White House, I believe the content will be irrelevant for most readers. "

    " I had hoped for an insightful memoir from a powerful man who has finally realized (too late) that the US auto industry should have built something other than SUV's for the last decade. I found a light easy-to-read book with interesting vignettes but little depth. Surprisingly, Iacocca expresses much greater disagreement with the current administration than I would have expected, hence the search for real leaders. Still, by the end of the book I felt he hadn't really answered (or fully addressed) the question in the title. "

    " I saw a couple of reviews stating Lee was ranting. Ok, there may have been some of that but he is spot on with how the U.S. Is messed up and we need leaders to turn us around. That means YOU. Funny how this book was written on 2006 and what Lee wrote about four years ago is still happening. Be a leader for you, your family, your work, and your life. This was an inspirational book. A must read. "

    " Interesting take on today's leaders. Very well written, not taking either political side. "
