Winston Churchill, the quintessential leader of the 20th century. Churchill skillfully converted crisis into victory, making the boldest of visions seem attainable. Axelrod looks at this much-studied figure in a way nobody has before: he explores 25 key facets of Churchill's leadership style and decision-making from his early years as a junior cavalry officer to his role throughout WWII. Each lesson is enlivened with a vivid vignette from Churchill's life.

Review:

"As thorough a biographer as he is a business thinker, Axelrod even gets in a lesson on logos derived from Churchill's famous V-for-Victory sign.""--Booklist" (Starred review) "In the hands of a lesser writer, this story of Churchill's brilliant career could have been muted by the business-book treatment; fortunately, Churchill's forceful personality takes center stage and the (surprisingly unforced) 'lessons' he inspires appear in sidebars inconspicuously peppered throughout 25 chapters. . . .
