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.

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
I have looked at a few of these books (Warfighting) on the Marine Corps. This one is very useful for all business people concerned with essential leadership. If you have been as lucky as I to work with good leaders, you will see these people in this book. If not, this a book of life lessons. He askes tough questions. "What is your training program? Your reading program? Your Commanders intent? Your rehearsal for success strategy? " In our practise where we often meet young breakthrough entrepreneurs this would be a very helpful book as new issues arise for them. The lessons are very useful at the small unit level, which are often the tough spots for start-ups. The writer has been in the Marines and business. He certainly makes a very strong case to hire ex-Marines. He also helps disprove the " Hollywood" marine story. Easy read and well laid out.

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.
