I found myself wanting to read a bit longer every time I opened the book, which is a rare quality in Leadership books that I have read.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By R. A Forczyk VINE VOICE on June 4, 2007
Format: Hardcover
As a former M-60 tanker myself, I found the introduction of this book on leadership strategy very interesting. The author relates how when conducting a tactical exercise in Japan with his M-60 tank platoon, a sudden snow storm and ice forced operations to temporarily shut down and the author told his platoon members to "do something productive." Shortly thereafter - in a standard feature of every new lieutenant's nightmare - the Battalion Commander came by and found that the troops had interpreted his order as to mean building snowmen in front of their tanks (pretty much the same thing happened to me with my tank platoon in Korea in winter, except we didn't get a high-level visit). As the author dryly notes, this example demonstrates the importance of clear communication in leadership. I normally stick to military history per se, but I found that this book - which has received unfair criticism from folks who want to focus on the cover design instead of what is on the pages in between - has a gripping, common sense use of military examples of leadership that are worthy of study for those who wish to understand what leadership is all about.

No Yelling consists of nine chapters, each of which discuss and provide examples of a key leadership trait, such as integrity, technical competence and taking care of your people. I remember these subjects being treated at length in ROTC classes at Notre Dame - where incidentally, the author also studied them - but they stick with you for life. Now that I am in the corporate world, like many a retired officer, I found it deplorable that so many civilian "leaders" fail to demonstrate many of these traits. This book is an attempt to clarify, the "right way" from the "wrong way" when it comes to leading people and accomplishing a mission.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M. Howie on February 15, 2007
Format: Hardcover
As a former Army officer, and now a business executive, I make an effort to read as many books on leadership as possible. "No Yelling" ranks on the top of my list. When I read Adamchik's examples of leadership in action, I'm impressed with how real, and relatable they are to experiences that most business leaders face. This book is easy to read, but more importantly, easy to put to work as a practical tool in any corporate leaders arsenal.

Format: Hardcover
The author shows how the principles of the Marine Corps can successfully be used in business. He also compares management techniques that have failed and why. Some of the things he reveals are how to make workers feel they are part of a team, complimenting them, how to take care of them, listening and hearing what is said. There are summaries at the end of each chapter to reinforce his points. This is a very positive book that should be required reading for every company executive in the country.

Format: Hardcover
The insights that Adamchik shares in this book are valuable for business executives and consultants. While the purpose of the Marine Corps is dramatically different from that of a business organization, the leadership principles in this book easily tranfer to business success. Adamchik's stories clearly demonstrate how to apply his leadership ideas in practice.

I have had the opportunity to "share the platform" with Wally Adamchik at an international conference. Wally is not only a fine author, but an outstanding keynote speaker.

Format: Hardcover
As a military veteran and business owner myself, I greatly appreciate the influence and impact that military values and principles can provide to businesses. Wally provides nuggets of information to improve one's leadership skills. The studious leader will glean lessons from the military and civilian examples that can easily apply to their own situations. There have been many leadership books written about the Corps, and many offer wisdom and insightfulness. Wally's is yet another that is also a weapon for your arsenal to grow or expand your leadership skills.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gary Perzel on February 12, 2007
Format: Hardcover
As a student of leadership and management for many years, I am impressed with Mr. Adamchik's book, "No Yelling." Wally's style is direct, applicable, and easy to understand. This book will give you more return on your invested time and money than most on the topic, and I recommend it to as a must-have/must-read.

Adamchik captures the essence of leadership from people that are actually in the trenches, as oppossed to those who may report results of studies from the halls of academia, (which has it's place, but also it's limitations.)

More than worth the read!

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Former Marine Officer on February 12, 2007
Format: Hardcover
As a former Marine Officer I recall the most valuable lesson taught to me was to stay focused and continually think. Military leadership requires the leader to maintain a laser beam focus and concentrate on the accomplishment of the mission while a myriad of distractions surround. As a small business owner this lesson along with other's in Adamchik's book help me to be successful every day.

Adamchik's book reveals leadership lessons through easily digestible examples. The book isn't the stale roadmap that you find so often in business books. The examples and discussion are meant to get you thinking and not spoon feed you answers to all your leadership questions.

This book is a great tool to sharpen your mind and get you thinking about leadership. Each of the examples and the discussions are thought provoking and get the reader thinking about how they would react.
