The manner in which the author seamlessly weaves stories from his, and a seemingly endless supply of contributors, days in the Corps into the 9 concepts that the book focuses on makes it very entertaining. I would imagine that those who have served (in any branch) could relate to this book very well. For those of us who have not, the accounts serve to maintain a level of interest that I have not been able to maintain in other books from this genre. Not once did I say to myself, "I need to finish this book and pay attention." 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.
I would highly recommend reading this book. Also, if you ever have the chance to see the author speak, I would suggest that as well, as he is more captivating than the book. I have not had the opportunity to see him speak in over 5 years, but I still remember quite a bit of what he had to say. That is the mark of a quality teacher/motivator in my opinion.
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. In each chapter, the author provides a "Marine Example" and a "Civilian Example," then draws conclusions from each - sort of a `lessons learned.' This is a simple, but effective book that provides much grist for discussion and lessons on leadership. While certainly not definitive - the US Army has a bit different take on leadership than the Marines, or the Navy or Air Force - the author does a wonderful job laying out the core traits that do go into making effective leaders and they are worthy of study. However, perhaps I am a bit jaundiced in my view of the corporate world (which ultimately is about the "icy, cold waters of statistical calculation" for profit - not leadership - as one of my professors at Notre Dame used to say), but a book like this may actually be more useful for young people just embarking upon a military or professional civilian career, rather than those already with their `feet wet.' An entertaining read.
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.
