Customer Review

on 15 February 2007
In an age where true heroism seems dead, it's no surprise that modern leaders feel compelled to look to history for suitable role models. The British war hero Admiral Horatio Nelson is such a figure, although his brand of heroism wasn't as perfect as you might hope. Stephanie Jones and Jonathan Gosling, unabashed Nelson fans, analyze his life, finding both inspiration and ambiguity in his exploits. Nelson was a great leader, true, but also a reckless one who sought glory and flouted convention. This intriguing study of his life offers advice and examples that remain useful two centuries after his death. We recommend this swashbuckling biography and guide to leaders and would-be leaders who want a fresh look at management theory in practice.
