Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0955817811, Paperback)

This book is so much more than just another business improvement book. Churchill published his memoirs of WWII in 1947, all 8000 pages of them including the appendices. I discovered them by accident, started reading Vol 1. Every so often Churchill would describe a situation from the war and offer the reader some advice, in the 5th volume he gave another piece of advice that really chimed with a business issue I recalled. It seemed a shame that his advice and secret skills learned over decades would never be passed on. This book captures Churchill's advice for a new audience. Each chapter describes the war situation the advice or skill emanates from and then places it into a business context. Unlike most business books, each chapter is full of surprising war stories. Once people start reading it they don't want to put it down. Everyone takes something away that enhances the way they work. It is a great read, improves business performance and provides lots of information about the war.
