The Littlest Green Beret: On Self-Reliant Leadership
Self-Reliance Learned from Special Forces and Self Leadership Honed as a Business Executive by Jan Rutherford
In this compact and meaty volume, Rutherford helps readers learn how to play the cards that life deals. The author models his principles of perseverance, determination, education and centrally, self-reliance. In so doing, he encourages us all to do the same. With an engaging style, Rutherford creates a confluence of Emerson’s self-reliance, Thoreau’s reflective seclusion, Socrates’ self-awareness, and Sparta’s discipline. Readers are rewarded with a relatively unvarnished life’s story filled with memorable and inspiring episodes.
