A Passion for Leadership by Robert M. Gates

Robert Gates, sometimes referred to as “the greatest living American,” has followed his best seller Duty, with another worthy book outlining  leadership lessons based on 50 years of distinguished public service – including tenures as Director of CIA, President of Texas A&M University, and Secretary of Defense.  It is a journey among the good, the great, and others, well, not so much good or great. Gates is a bureaucracy basher, and a man who knows that it is not money or systems, but people who make the difference between existence and accomplishment.

One of his (and now my) favorite sayings is: to avoid criticisms say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
