    Excellent, no holds barred look at what leadership truly means Fantastic, real life situations and biographical examples from Keni Thomas s life There is a cost to being a leader, and the author does a great job of inspiring and encouraging readers to be dynamic leaders in their own spheres of influence The author also challenges readers to develop their character in a number of multifaceted ways, and he does a stellar job of helping readers further understand how they re individually wired.

  11. Greg Van Vorhis says:
    I have heard the author speak, so I knew the stories and his themes Toward the end of the book, there comes a lot of repetition, some of it word for word Otherwise, this is a great tribute to the men of the Blackhawk Down mission and a great lesson on the meaning of leadership, constantly reminding the reader that if you don t step up, who will

  12. Ryan says:
    This was pretty awesome I had the opportunity to hear him speak at a conference and then read the book on the flight home The book is his account of the Blackhawk Down story He gives the account but mixes in life applications and plenty of Bible verses to help you see life differently through the story Pretty darned cool.
