"Whether the 'project' is a westward expedition or a hostile corporate takeover, Uldrich makes the case that the past isn't so different from the present - or from the future.

An interesting take on the management styles and skills that led to the amazing success of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Informative and goes into some details on the major issues and decisions made by their team.
