I'm not saying I'm a great leader, but my experience and reasons for leaving the Air Force in 97 as a 1990 USAFA grad and good career start exactly matches what Tim has in his book. Why stick around when I can have more job satisfaction and financial rewards without the battle against MPC and their mindless assignments - which primarily punishes those who work hard and do great work. Nice work, Tim. Hope to see you at the reunion in Oct. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230391273, Hardcover)

This book will shape the debate on how to save the military from itself. The first part recognizes, indeed celebrates, what the military has done well in attracting and developing leadership talent. The book then examines the causes and consequences of the modern military's stifling personnel system, with a close look at strategic failures in Iraq and Afghanistan. The book also reports a new survey of active duty officers (done by the author) that reports what is driving the best and brightest to leave the service in frustration. Solutions round out the book, grounded in an economic emphasis on market forces.
