Publisher's Summary

A Higher Standard takes a candid look at the exciting military career of US Army General Ann Dunwoody, who received her fourth star - a rank never before reached by a woman - in her fourth decade of service. From her first command leading 200 soldiers to her final one leading 69,000, Dunwoody reveals the challenges she faced and the changes she initiated by sharing both the smallest moments and the most pivotal events in her career.

With a foreword by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, author of the bestseller Lean In, this book offers sound leadership principles, insight into critical issues facing our nation, and applicable lessons for achieving success in any field.

    "Amazing"

    Great book
    I am a parachute rigger female and I was told by my superiors that they worked with our retired General and made me feel proud to know she shared my same love for the field❤️🇺🇸
    Thank you for making the road easy for females in the military.

    "Amazing! Great leadership even if not military"

    This book is an amazing story about a strong woman who identifies advocates and others that just saw here potential and helped her move her career in a promising direction. while also identifying others who stood in her way including herself at times. I read this book after I read Lean In; it is the perfect follow up. Sheryl Sandberg even writes the forward! this is a great book even for those who are not in the military! Loved it!!

    "Great leadership book"

    The book is amazing! Insights into what it takes to be a leader military or civilian. The performance is a bit off with the acronyms but wouldn't be noticeable to most listening.
