It is entertaining and highly relevant to any leadership institution.  
….it was a great read and this will be a publication worthy of the attention of leadership organisations around the world.

PS. I now know why I was never getting my stuff on time in Iraq - you were sitting back with the showers drinking tea and eating custard creams with your adjutant!

A fascinating and well written book clearly highlighting how contrasting the UK Military and NHS leadership styles are. It articulates through experiences and descriptive anecdotes how they can be easily transposed for everyday use at every level of management. 

A book that every aspiring leader should read and refer to throughout their career.

We cannot all be elite soldiers or Generals and while reading about their journeys may inspire us, achieving such greatness remains in the realms of fantasy for all but the few.  This book is about practical leadership lessons that apply to the many - we can apply these lessons whatever sector we work in to get the best from our teams.

Learned at the 'university of life' this is a valuable collection of lessons for young people aspiring to any kind of leadership role.
