When the Buck Stops With You: Harry S. Truman on Leadership

3.56 of 5 stars 3.56  ·  rating details  ·  9 ratings  ·  1 review
Harry Truman had been vice president for less than a year when he inherited the White House in 1945. With little preparation, he masterfully guided the nation through the last days of World War II, the Marshall Plan, and the war in Korea. The humble, plainspoken man known for the adage “The buck stops here” took on the challenges the way he knew best—head on.
