This is a BUSINESS leadership book. I don't agree with his very liberal extension of the term "Commando" to anyone who is willing to "dare the impossible to achieve the extraordinary." I believe the elite military personnel who have earned that distinction are entitled to keep that moniker as a distinctive term...it is not one that should be applied to nearly any field of endeavor. Regardless, some good leadership tips are contained within the text. Don't believe I'd read it again, though.

This was a well-written book by a man with a wealth of experience. He covers several major military operations in history and relates the 'commando tactics' of leadership with those of a business. He compares and contrasts leading special operations troops into battle with leading engineers, sales personnel and other lower-level employees into growing and maintaining an effective, profitable business.

Even if you're not involved in business, this is an excellent book on leadership, full of amazing historical anecdotes and cases.

how the military can be adapted to the current business battlefield. IMO, it can be applied to MNC and companies which are entrepreneurial in nature.
