Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

It's fun listening to Lee Iacocca's gravelly voice scold us for the mess we're in. His curmudgeonly conversational style and idiomatic language make us feel as though grandfather is venting at us. His lists of complaints include Iraq and the lies that got us there, dependency on foreign oil, democracy undermined, grossly incompetent political appointees, eco-disastrous policies, deficit insanity, etc. He holds special venom for Cheney's pretense of distance from Halliburton's humongous profits from no-bid, no accountability contracts. But he holds irresponsible nonvoters and mindless voters responsible for it all. He exhorts us to listen carefully to presidential candidates and to apply to them his nine Cs of leadership: do they have curiosity, creativity, communication skills, character, courage, conviction, charisma, competence and common sense? Iacocca also describes how he put the Mustang and the minivan on the road and saved Chrysler from financial ruin, then blames his successor for the unequal marriage of (and divorce from) Chrysler and Mercedes-Benz. But Iacocca isn't simply a boaster and grumbler; he's also a doer. He established a leadership institute at Lehigh University to address the lack thereof, and a diabetes research foundation after his beloved wife died of the disease. Simultaneous release with the Scribner hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 2).

From Booklist

Iacocca is outraged. Now 82, he has seen the U.S. overcome some of its worst crises, including the Great Depression and World War II, through great leadership. As the CEO of Chrysler Corporation, he brought the company back from the brink of bankruptcy and worked with the government to overcome the fallout from the 1970s oil crisis. Now, he says, our government has fallen under the grip of arrogant ideologues and spineless detractors. Our business leaders are more obsessed with stock options and trumping each other's multimillion-dollar salaries than with finding creative solutions to pressing problems, such as the health-care crisis, our loss of competitive edge in the global marketplace, the massive trade deficit, and the slow death of the middle class. He describes his frustration as his successor at Chrysler sold out to Daimler-Benz, and the once proud, independent company lost its soul. Although Iacocca presents a brutal analysis of cronyism in Washington, D.C., the abysmal situation in Iraq, and failed policies at home, he is not a pessimist. With a reputation as a straight shooter, he hopes to inspire more young people to vote. This is a surprisingly outspoken take on the pressing need for real leadership in this country. David Siegfried
