About the Author:

Maj. Gen. Perry M. Smith worked in the Pentagon for many years and logged extensive operational and leadership experience. He flew more than 180 combat missions during the Vietnam War, including 50 over North Vietnam, and later commanded a wing of F-15s in Germany. He has frequently appeared as a military analyst on CBS, CNN, and National Public Radio.

Review:

"Loaded with anecdotes, management and leadership principles, and 'get-ahead' techniques that can be applied effectively to private as well as public service."

"Should be stamped ‘MUST READ’ and provided to every person headed for a job in the Pentagon."
