Publisher's Summary

Kelly Perdew, winner of The Apprentice 2, has what it takes to lead. His secret weapon: the principles he learned at West Point, as a U.S. Army Intelligence officer, and as an Airborne Ranger, principles that he's applied to business with the same firepower determination that makes our military the best on the battlefield.

In the military, there's no margin for error. Wrong decisions are deadly decisions. Likewise, in business, wrong decisions can cost you your job. In Take Command, Kelly gives you an insider look at how business luminaries with military training, such as Donald Trump, Ross Perot, Marty Evans, Bill Coleman, and Roger Staubach, have achieved success through 10 essential principles: duty, impeccability, passion, perseverance, planning, teamwork, loyalty, flexibility, selfless service, and integrity.

    "Very disappointed"

    The most disappointing thing about this book is that I can tell it had incredible potential. I enjoyed reading about the author's history and how the military impacted his life. However, I could only suffer through half due to the quotes. Literally every other sentence is a "but you know what they say..." or "and as such-and-such said..." or "like Famous Person 142 said to the such-and-such when such-and-such happened...". It was horrible. After a hundred or so of those, I just couldn't take anymore, and it's a real shame.

    "GOOD LEADERSHIP BOOK"

    I liked the ten principles of leadership.Duty, Impeccability, Passion, Perserverance, Planning, Teamwork, Loyalty, Flexibility, Selfless Service and Integrity. I plan to use these principle's to be a good leader.The only problem I had with the book was that it sounded to be more of an autobiography of Kelly Perdew.There were too many stories included about successful individuals.Also one needs to have watched the Apprentice to appreciate it.The military was really praised maybe mentioned too much.Kellys honesty about his performance at the Apprenctice impressed me.I had wondered why during his last task he was stuck on his computer and did not seem moved with what was going on around him.I agree with him that it is important for a leader to know how to take control of his emotions and stay calm in the midst of a storm.This book can also be used to adverstise the benefits of joining the military!!
    Overall though it was a very good book on how to be a good leader.I would recommend it to all.
