Bill Walsh's story provides an outstanding insight into the pressures of leadership in a high profile demanding organisation. At each stage the book is punctuated by anecdotes and examples, both good and bad, giving lots of ideas which organisations should use.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing year, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Howard's story is a fantastic read, well written, great descriptions and a very human reflection on this amazing year. This book blends so much from the human aspects, American and Pakistani, strategic and family, fear and laughter. I really enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you are serious about being a good leader, read this., 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gavin Esler has a friendly, "story telling" style that makes this book a great and highly educational read. Through illustrating all of his ideas and points with anecdotes of famous world leaders, many gained at first hand, he brings the book to life in a way I had not expected.

I would recommend this to anybody who aspires to be a better leader, to improve their business or organisation, or to help them connect with clients and other interested parties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 31 Dec. 2010
This Gavin Maxwell book is fantastic. It is really well written, moves along and evokes the atmosphere and challenges of the Marsh Arab environment. If you like books about the different Arab cultures this is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Camera, 31 Dec. 2010
The camera is great, if a little more technically advanced than I am used to.

It turned up within 4 days and was well packed.
