"Tim Kane's analysis is compelling and his findings are relevant for other organizations, public and private, that risk bleeding talent. For anyone interested in the future of the American military after more than a decade of war, this is a must read book." - David H. McCormick, Former Under Secretary for International Affairs, U.S. Treasury
"At a time when more attention is being paid to the need for creative destruction - and nondestructive creation - by America's entrepreneurs, startup maven Tim Kane shines the spotlight on the creativity of veterans and men and women in the military. Bleeding Talent is a must read for those seeking a more effective and efficient military. Kane asks the big question: What can we do to harness the entrepreneurial talent inside to bring an innovation culture to the military?" - Glenn Hubbard, Dean, Columbia Business School, and former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers
"Most Washington wonks forget that human capital is the most important weapon in the Pentagon's arsenal. Tim Kane reminds us that our troops win wars. At a minimum, they deserve a personnel system that rewards voluntary service with more autonomy and less coercion." - James Jay Carafano, Director, Foreign Policy Studies, The Heritage Foundation
"Since the two Gulf Wars, the US military has becoming widely admired - and properly feared - as the preeminent fighting force in the world. It also is an exemplary meritocratic institution - or is it? That is the challenging question that Tim Kane, a former Air Force officer, addresses in this pioneering and thought provoking study. While praising the military for what it does right, Kane also offers a timely and well document constructive critique of how the military could do much better to hold onto its best and brightest. This is a must read for everyone in the military, our political leaders who oversee it, and citizens who care about it." - Robert E. Litan, Vice President, Research and Policy, The Kauffman Foundation and Senior Fellow, Economic Studies, The Brookings Institution

A new way of thinking with a path to reality. Great read and hopefully this book will inspire a revolution, not more evolution.
