Praise

"Perhaps the finest book on practical leadership ever written."
— Brian Tracy
"Winston Churchill once said, ‘We are all worms. But I do believe that I am a glow worm.’ His business acumen, grounded in candor, glows in this uncommon management guide."
— Cathy Madison, Utne Reader
"This book is must reading for today’s business leaders and entrepreneurs."
— Fred W. Mackenback, retired president and CEO, The Lincoln Electric Company
"Churchill on Leadership demonstrates that the principles that guided Churchill ably translate to private industry today . . . [I]f you remove Churchill from his political context, he would have the résumé to be among the great business leaders of any age."
