About this title

Synopsis:

American History is replete with rags-to-riches tales, but it is hard to think of one that compares with that of Ulysses S. Grant. In the spring of 1861, Grant was a modest clerk in his father's leather goods store. Within three years, he would become commander of all armies of the United States and go on to win the Civil War. Within eight, he would be elected president. His remarkable story is truly an inspiration to leaders from all walks of life.
"Fascinating, Grant's wisdom and courage are finally depicted as a model for the ages."
— Robert Novak, syndicated columnist

In Ulysses S. Grant on Leadership, John Barnes reveals the leadership secrets of the man to whom Abraham Lincoln entrusted the very survival of the Union. You will meet a man of extraordinary personal courage who overcame failures early in life that would have crushed lesser men. You will discover how this tenacious general inspired a dispirited army to achieve victory on the battlefield. Most important, you will learn how to apply to your own life the characteristics that elevated Grant from obscurity to greatness.
Ulysses S. Grant was a common man with uncommon leadership abilities. He succeeded brilliantly where others had failed. Guided by his magnificent example, so can you.
