About the Author:

RADM Robert O. Wray Jr., USN, a 1979 Naval Academy graduate, served as a nuclear engineer on surface ships and later enjoyed a varied civilian career. Currently, he is president of the Navy's Board of Inspection and Survey and lives in Norfolk, VA.

Review:

"The book is divided into ten simple and relatively stand-alone chapters with four appendices. In keeping with the simplicity of the book, Rear Admiral Wray writes chapters using leadership lists, leadership stories, leadership advice, and advice from senior leaders. He concludes with advice on 'becoming the leader you want to be', followed by appendices detailing study-practise-observe-mentor techniques, recommending 35 leadership books, and describing leadership traits, attributes, advice and rules. Finally, RADM Wray has captured a thought on leadership that many ADF leaders could aspire in asserting that '[t]he only time a leader should raise their voice is to save a life, either others or their own'. Ultimately, Saltwater Leadership provokes even the most senior leaders to reflect on their own leadership, while simultaneously helping to guide young leaders as they enter a career in the ADF." - Australian Defence Force Journal
