This book should be a must read for all leaders in whatever field of endeavour they find themselves. I found Gen McChrystal's early career as interesting as the more recent events he outlines.
The formation of the man as a leader, learning from the examples of good and poor leaders he encountered on his journey. I thought his explanantion of how the older supply sergeant gave him some really sage advice to be most instructive to a young officer. Similarly how he encountered his new commanding officer at Ft Stewart who taught him adherence to personal and professional standards. Great lessons.
It was good to read that he also set high personal and professional standards for special forces soldiers on dress and personal grooming challenging the shaggy unkempt "im off to my war fighting" dress code comment. And how detainees were to be properly treated. Absolutely right. Its an affective domain thing.
The articulation of the processes he went through in fighting and learning in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are instructive in any field. Humility, adherence to standards, listening to your good people (The Intel sergeant chasing Zarqawi...... he knew and McChrystal backed him; even aginst his own judgment, a sergeant's assessment against the general.......and the sergeant was right) ability to think, move and communicate across geographical boundaries. Fabulous lessons.
Overall, an unmissable read.
The world owes a great debt to people like Stanley McChrystal. I am saying thank you for what you did.
I don't usually have any interest in military memoirs as I'm not really into that type of history. However I saw a TED talk, given by General McChrystal, on the topic of leadership. It was most inspiring and, when I heard that his memoirs are regarded as a handbook on leadership, I decided to give it a read. I'm glad I did. It's an excellent book and a fascinating, detailed insight, not only into McChrystal's leadership, but also into recent events in Iraq and Afghanistan.
a very good autobiography by a top general. His life story is worth reading and quite inspiring. An ordinary military brat who followed his family into the US military machine and came out on top. A well written biography and one I enjoyed and would recommend If this review was helpful please click the yes button
