Praise for Paul Lloyd Hemphill's book:
“Hemphill's writing style is lucid and succinct, and the rapid fire, short-bursts of information, examples, and applications can be read in small doses to allow the reader to dwell on each story and find practical self-applications. The book can be read in daily journal format, with one or two stories at a time to challenge the reader to excel and emulate the example.”
Scott Mingus, Sr., Scientist and Civil War Author
“A refreshingly positive human approach to a topic often inundated with scientific inquiry. Thanks for putting ‘people’ back into Leadership!”
Capt Edward J. Rogers, Command Leadership School, Naval War College, Newport, RI
“I find the style very simple, easy to read and enjoyable. I find the ‘lessons’ to be right on target.”
Richard White, Exec VP, Bayer Corporation

The author takes one of the most fascinating chapters in U.S. history, the battle of Gettysburg, and draws important insights for today’s business managers and employees.
