Publisher's Summary

If you aspire to lead, whether in business or your community, this book is just what you need. Leadership authority Donald T. Phillips offers a uniquely inspiring approach. He presents real-life scenarios from the American Revolution to illustrate how to overcome the toughest odds and achieve success. As you learn the strategies that worked for our founding fathers, you will share in the very principles that founded America. When the colonists' situation under British tyranny became desperate, dynamic leaders arose from the masses. Washington, Paine, Franklin, and other men of integrity banded together to manifest a shared vision. They forged a team of patriots who withstood impossible conditions and overcame an opponent who seemed invincible. As a leadership consultant, lecturer, and best-selling author, Donald T. Phillips has inspired many to greatness. His leadership series also includes Lincoln on Leadership. Veteran narrator Nelson Runger delivers his insightful lessons in a clear voice, full of conviction.

Business Primer

In an interesting and compelling format, the author has woven a history of the American Revolution with principles of leadership. The leadership maxims used are quotations from various founders. George Washington is most frequently quoted and the author's esteem for this giant in American History is apparent. I found this book enjoyable and will again listen to the book to better glean the timeless gems of wisdom.

A must read for all americans.

I believe this book should be a mandatory read for all high school students, and most certainly all elected officials. The historical perspective and insight into the founding fathers is tremendous. Too many people in this country have never learned of the courage and sacrifice of the founding fathers and it is my opinion that this book is an excellent recourse for that information.

Learn History and Leadership

This book is a great compilation of important moments on the history of our foundation. Also, it provides insights on the success of our great leaders at that time. Would definitely recommend you read (or listen) if you are interested in USA history, politics, and leadership.

A Must-Read!

I hope to re-read this book at least once a year. It fleshed out so many details about the vital story of how American democracy came to be. I would have liked even more details, filling out the personalities of the Founding Fathers, but this book is am important reminder of principles. Read it, and pass it on to others. We need this message about the struggle to achieve Democracy, and what it looks like, and the integrity of character needed to preserve Democracy.

Revolutionary Leadership

Another remarkable work by Phillips, this time analyzing our Founding Fathers.

A must-listen for any good manager who wants to be a great leader.

As with Runger's narration of "Lincoln on Leadership", there are two minor nits with the recording (you can hear Runger's breathing inbetween some sections and chapters flow together so it's hard to guess when one ends and the next one starts), I gave it a 5-star rating because of the content. I recommend getting a copy of the paperback version so you can follow these principles day-to-day.
