[October 13, 2013] Today I’m adding more books that I found especially interesting:
Rumsfeld’s Rules: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War, and Life by Donald Rumsfeld
Donald Rumsfeld is controversial writer and figure in U.S. politics, war, and business. In this book, Rumsfeld captures his rules, gathered over his lifetime. There are many pearls of wisdom for us. The book is choke full of wisdom and good advice and makes sense. For example, when discussing “unknown, unknowns” (a blog topic later) he notes, “What you see is what you get. What you don’t see gets you.”
Endless War: Middle-Eastern vs. Western Civilization by Ralph Peters
Ralph Peters is another controversial writer and thinker. Some people cannot get beyond the controversy to see that he really does have many great insights into global affairs. In this book, he shows why he is a most insightful strategist. Here he addresses today’s most vitally important issue – the assault of militant Islam on Western civilization, values, and culture. Peters discusses the fundamental underlying nature of the struggle between militant Islam and the West that began fourteen centuries ago and still rages.
