From the Back Cover:

The New York Times, Washington Post and BusinessWeek Best-Seller

From the offices of corporate America to the corridors of the White House, Donald Rumsfeld's uncanny knack for clear thinking and no-nonsense action has repeatedly been called upon in times of crisis. Now, as Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld leads America's war on terrorism, The Rumsfeld Way provides an enlightening and provocative look at the man the Washington Post has called "the Articulator in Chief," and outlines the leadership skills, methods, and strategies that make Donald Rumsfeld one of today's most trusted and accomplished public figures.

"The mission here is to tell what this tough backroom operator and aging politician has to reveal about being a leader in tough times. The book does this. . . . Rumsfeld, by this account, is a pragmatic, charismatic and determined leader who persists at all costs. The lessons here are worth learning." -USA Today

"An excellent look at the leadership methods of one of the most powerful secretaries of defense in recent years." -Publishers Weekly
