"One of the most interesting people in Britain and this book is one of the most interesting about winners." (Gavin Esler).

Attitude, resilience, crisis management, the right mindset, extreme mind, strategy, leadership and teamwork, all are key elements to make a winner. Alistair Campbell's analysis of what makes a winner tick is a handy manual for anybody who wants to have an extra edge professionally and personally.

Alistair Campbell writes in his typical loose style with many examples from the world of politics, media, sport and business.

Campbell uses the term O.S.T. - Objective, Strategy, Tactics - the structure used to define your plan to success. The objective is likely to be fixed and very simple to define, strategy is what approach you'll take and is generally long term but must be communicated and brought up frequently to get everyone pulling in the same direction. Tactics on the other hand are the actions required to implement the strategy at any given moment in time, they are likely to change quite often and must take changing factors into account.

As Benjamin Franklin once said 'by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.' The fundamental thing i have learnt is pay attention to detail a classic trait of any winner.

A must read for any student of leadership.
