Joseph J. Thomas and Dr. Marolda have put together a wonderful book with 49 stories of true Navy leaders. They captured the essence of the leadership skills of those 49 Navy Sailors and Marines very well. This is a must read for any student of leadership. This book was originally funded by the class of 1978 at the U.S. Naval Academy as a gift to the fine men and women studying at the USNA to become Naval officers. You have an opportunity, through this book, to share in their learning. Don't miss the opportunity to purchase this book. Contact me and I will send you a suitable chapter 50 about another great Navy leader - CWO4 Wallace Louis Exum.
Back in 2005, the Leadership, Ethics, and Law Department (LEL) of the U.S. Naval Academy put together a compendium of short biographical essays focusing on naval (Navy and Marine Corps) personnel who have embodied certain leadership characteristics.
Joseph J. Thomas Ph.D. is the Chair and Distinguished Professor of Leadership at the United States Naval Academy Annapolis.
