Summary

Summary

This is a blend of current bestsellers and strong mid-list titles, including well reviewed fiction and nonfiction, and international favorites. Aimed at pleasing a wide readership, the Core Series includes New York Times bestsellers, award-winning titles, and works by highly acclaimed authors.

Fresh from the political wars, where he served as a White House adviser to Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Clinton, as a campaign aide to Bush, and a close-up reporter of Carter, David Gergen assesses the key leadership lessons they offer for coming presidents. Gergen has watched these chief executives deal with decision-making, with conflicting advice, with their private lives, the task of defining and conveying their goals, and their success or failure at capturing the public's imagination. Defining the seven core elements of a great leader, he nominates a team of all-stars from the past nine presidencies.
