View all copies of this ISBN edition:

You've probably never heard of Col. John Boyd, even though he is considered to be one of this century's leading military strategists. Boyd's war strategies were instrumental in America's highly successful campaign in the First Gulf War. Learn how his innovative way of thinking can be applied to any decision-making process... and improve it. A new book, Col. John Boyd - A Warrior for All Times, shows how a young Boyd survived the Depression, learning the value of integrity, and how his military career rocketed because of his strategic and tactical genius. This Korean War fighter pilot was perhaps the greatest American flyer. He was nicknamed "Forty-Second Boyd" because he could obtain a firing solution on his enemy within less than forty seconds. Boyd, an anti-bureaucratic military leader, offered a new way of thinking that can lead us to a brighter future. Boyd's theories were applied to past, present, and future, and he truly is a warrior for all times. His innovative thinking can usher in a brighter future by fighting for peace first. But if that is not possible, his theories can quickly and thoroughly vanquish the enemies of freedom. Boyd did not write any books on his theories, so it was important for Lt. Col. Hinds to memorialize the basis for his strategy and tactics. He studied Boyd in Air War College and wrote his thesis on Boyd's strategy in the First Gulf War. When Hinds was at the Pentagon, he ran into the same bureaucrats that Boyd did, so it was important to tell this story for future generations. Our antiquated way of thinking is not working anymore. Try Boyd's creative thought process on for size. It just might fit, leading us into a Brave New World. Not bad for a day's worth of reading! Whether you are in the military, government, business, or just trying to survive in our distressed economy, you may find a new direction in this book.
