Iacocca shares the lessons he's learned from a lifetime of hard work and adventure, of spectacular successes and stunning defeats, of integrity and grace and good old-fashioned American optimism.Read Less
Very timely book. In this day, our country is void of leaders.

Where are the Leaders?
Everyone who cares about how this country is being run, should read this book. Too bad Lee isn't younger, he'd make a great President. It's evident from the book and it's standards that we have no real leaders in any important office today, nor few in the business world.

brilliant look at the US
It's too bad that Lee Iacocca is in his 80's because we could sure use someone like him in our government these days. He offers a direct and sometimes humorous opinion about our government and why we are in the shape we are in. This is a great read for anyone living in the US that has an open mind and feelings for our country!

Great read with eye-opening perspective!
This is an amazing read! The book is well written and it is like you are sitting across the table from Chairman Iacocca himself. He provides excellent perspective, from the view of a corporate CEO, on the country, the economy, and the world. I highly recommend this book to my friends who aspire to become great leaders, like Mr. Iacocca.

A Must Read for Everyone
Very informative. A must read for anyone interested in our survival as a country. An easy read, and not too long. The criteria listed for selecting a leader would be most helpful for anyone with a sincere interest in our upcoming election, and for selecting any leader, anytime, for anything. Mr. Iacocca gave me much food for thought, and I will be reviewing this book on an ongoing basis.
