About this book

Reviews

'In this imaginative, interesting, and well-written work, Newell identifies key speeches in the leadership careers of key leaders in American history, a unique vantage point so far as I know. The author tells a good story, and has a firm grasp on the leadership literature and a solid grasp of the historical literature. The author wisely uses the C's (context, challenge, character, competence, and consequences) to make sense of the cases. Not only is the approach unique, it also appeals to how we innately learn, though dramatic stories about conflicts and tradeoffs.' - Robert Anthony Maranto, 21st Century Chair in Leadership, Department of Education Reform, University of Arkansas, USA

'Terry Newell makes a truly outstanding contribution to the leadership field at a time of crisis in our nation's capital due to lack of 'statesmanship, character and leadership in America.' His use of history is invaluable.' - David Abshire, president, Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, USA
