        The Essence of Leadership
        This is not only an excellent resource for those in leadership positions, but for those aspiring to same. The excellent examples, gentle streams of thought, and carefully crafted quotes all served to capture what the real 'essence' of leadership is all about. I secured this book as a gift for my former military commander (who just retired); he was inspirational in my own service as a commander, and displayed so much of what this book entailed. Thank you for sharing it with us; it will no doubt continue to help sharpen our own iron.
