“Don Phillips has done it again . . . bringing Lincoln’s brilliant leadership to life. Lincoln’s brilliance is as relevant today as it was a century and half ago.” — George Bodenheimer, former president, ESPN, and author of Every Town Is a Sports Town How can President Lincoln’s wisdom be applied to the most pressing conflicts of modern-day America? With a characteristically fresh and perceptive reading of Abraham Lincoln’s own writings and speeches, best-selling author Donald T. Phillips reveals how America’s sixteenth president handled many of the same national dilemmas we face today. Looking to Lincoln’s exemplary leadership of a fractured nation, Phillips offers a deeply relevant analysis of how Lincoln’s example could help forge solutions to the many issues and divisions challenging our country now. “[An] intelligent and often moving look at one of the nation’s greatest presidents . . . Using his extensive knowledge of Lincoln, Phillips makes convincing cases throughout for what the nineteenth-century statesman’s opinion would be on a wide array of issues faced by the twenty-first-century United States, including climate change, torture, immigration, and equal pay for women. For readers who find present-day politics almost too much to contemplate, Phillips’s closing vision of Lincoln witnessing the ‘current state of affairs’ will be especially poignant and bittersweet.” — Publishers Weekly

The Architecture of Leadership is a simple but effective toolkit for leaders, whose main theme is "preparation = performance." Using the elements of architecture, they begin with a foundation of character and values, move to a floor representing a drive to achieve combined with the capacity to care, and continue with the framework of innate traits and acquired skills to the ceiling and roof of opportunity and performance, respectively. Supporting it all are the pillars of honesty, integrity, courage, respect, commitment, trust, ethics, and hard work.

In 1799, at the end of George Washington's long life and illustrious career, the politician Henry Lee eulogized him as: “First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” Esteemed historian Richard Brookhiser now adds to this list, “First in leadership,” examining the lessons to be learned from our first president, first commander-in-chief, and founding CEO. With wit and skill, Brookhiser expertly anatomizes true leadership with lessons from Washington's three spectacularly successful careers as an executive: general, president, and tycoon. In every area of endeavor, Washington maximized his strengths and overcame his flaws. Brookhiser shows how one man's struggles and successes two centuries ago can serve as a model—and an inspiration—for leaders today.

The early days of 1781 cast a cold shadow over the downtrodden American Continental army. Mutiny, the recent disastrous losses in South Carolina at Camden and Charleston, and Benedict Arnold's betrayal called General George Washington's leadership into question. Faced with the possibility of either a crushing defeat or a brilliant victory, Washington's loyalty to the fledgling United States compelled him to make a bold offensive stroke in the late summer of 1781. In less than a month, he marched the combined American and French armies to Yorktown, Virginia nearly 450 miles south of their encampment at New York to face the might of the British army. Through a riveting mixture of fact and dialogue, noted author Donald T. Phillips chronicles the remarkable events of the Siege of Yorktown. From dramatic artillery assaults to the celebrated American and French attacks and, finally, to the incredible British surrender, On The Wing Of Speed delivers a thrilling tale of courage, strength, and devotion.
