5.0 out of 5 stars Great job, Coyle! October 17, 2013
I started reading your book and found it interesting, and also meaningful. It is easy to read and presents important concepts. I especially appreciated the concept of the "servant leader", which you wished your readers to strive to become. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and insights with us in your book!

I usually choose to stay away from leadership books. However, this one was worth the read. It provides real-world historical lessons that even a non-historian or Civil War expert can appreciate. I recommend it for any business-oriented reading group.

Tom does a great job in capturing leadership lessons and illustrating them through the filter of the Battle of Gettysburg. He is quite effective in using the Gettysburg persona by coupling them to key leadership fundamentals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed at the power of Gettysburg October 16, 2013
I saw Tom's presentation on "Leadership Lessons" and was amazed at how powerful the activities at the Battle of Gettysburg reflect on the theory of being a true leader. I believe that many people can identify with the Battle as a metaphor for the battles in life. In addition, I enjoyed learning about the leadership examples of those who won and lost the Civil War.

While many of us pay scant attention to the distant past, Tom shows us how events from 150 years ago can help us become better communicators and leaders today. I especially liked the section on empowerment.
