    Where have all the leaders gone? - Google Books

    This is a great new book by Lee Iacocca, a man who says what he means and means what he says.
    Once you click on the link, scroll down and you click on chapters in the book and read it....Great inspiration!
    OK, so its not new but its still a great read and needs new life given to it...Pass it around.

    Have you actually read the book? He says an awful lot in it that I wouldn't think you'd like very much.

    From Publishers Weekly
    It's fun listening to Lee Iacocca's gravelly voice scold us for the mess we're in. His curmudgeonly conversational style and idiomatic language make us feel as though grandfather is venting at us. His lists of complaints include Iraq and the lies that got us there, dependency on foreign oil, democracy undermined, grossly incompetent political appointees, eco-disastrous policies, deficit insanity, etc. He holds special venom for Cheney's pretense of distance from Halliburton's humongous profits from no-bid, no accountability contracts. But he holds irresponsible nonvoters and mindless voters responsible for it all. He exhorts us to listen carefully to presidential candidates and to apply to them his nine Cs of leadership: do they have curiosity, creativity, communication skills, character, courage, conviction, charisma, competence and common sense?
