This book is excellent for Leader Development and training. Especially US Army Leaders. Recommend reading if becoming a Commander or Officer within the Military.

It has really great information and examples as well as quotes throughout, but it drags and is boring at some places

Not a read that explain anything new or relevant.

This book is essential reading for all those who are or hope to someday be military leaders. It utilizes philosophy, ethics, and morals in its discussion of an ideal leader. it is versatile in that it can be used early in an officer's career to guide him, or later, to refine him. "The Challenge of Command" should be required reading of all officers and officer candidates.

Shows what a military officer needs to read and how to apply it to get an inner foundation for effective leadership. This is certainly not just a bibliography listing of books!

I was happy to see that I had already read a number of the suggested books but there was plenty of new material to go find.

Good officers often ask the question - "What should I read?"

Well this book gives a solid base for where to start. There's several years worth of reading suggestions (for the average reader that is).

This will be the first book I give to every new LT under my command.
This well-written and short book was crafted to serve as a starting point for those military leaders who wish to further refine their leadership skills. The author introduces a number of leadership concepts and provides a lot of thought-provoking insight, based in his own experience and those of other military leaders he interviewed. I read some chapters, and went back and re-read them to make sure I had gleaned everything I could from his writing. Throughout the text and at the end of each chapter, he lists several books that you may want to check out for further study.
