I put off posting a review of this book because I just did not like it. Giving bad reviews isn’t fun.
Lead Like Ike is about following D.D. Eisenhower’s style during WWII when he was preparing for the assaults that turned the tide for the Allies. It was an interesting read with some facts that were unknown to me. But I found it to be too much of a stretch to use his tactics in today’s global economy.
If you are interested in some lesser known facts about the struggles of a lower-grade officer trying to pull together a multi-national force, then you might find this book intriguing. But if you are looking for strategies to use in today’s market this book may not be helpful.
I cannot recommend this book for its readability either. There is much repetition. In my opinion (and this is only my opinion) this book has little to offer.
