1.0 out of 5 stars He Hates His Boss, and Wrote a Book About It, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bridging the Military-Civilian Divide: What Each Side Must Know About the Other - And About Itself (Hardcover)
Professor Fleming makes sweeping generalizations about "the military" hating civilians, and tries to justify his assertions with more generalizations. I have read a couple of articles written by him, and found their counter-traditional positions about the military interesting, especially coming from his position at the Naval Academy.

As a young Naval Officer, I had experience serving in Naval Labs that were mixed military/civilian. My experience was that there were competent, highly-motivated individuals in both categories. There were also some whiners in both, who always seemed to be extra loud.

In retrospect, my experience with conflict in these Navy labs seems identical to the conflict I experienced between engineers and sales people in high-tech companies I worked for after I finished my Naval service.

Instead of finding enlightenment in Professor Fleming's book, I became bored with his "whining," and quit after 120 pages. The din from his pulpit was too high!
