His recent book, The Founding Fathers On Leadership (Warner Books, Inc.), is the fascinating and compelling story of teamwork and selfless leadership practiced by America's Founding Fathers during the period surrounding the American Revolution. The book takes the reader into the world of "team leaders" Thomas Paine, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison as they mapped strategy, forged consensus, and picked the right staff people - including such heretofore unproven talents as Lafayette and John Paul Jones - made crucial decisions and daring choices, and created a brand-new venture called the United States of America.

Lincoln On Leadership is currently in its 13th printing and has been published in seven different languages: English, Spanish, German, Polish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. He is also the author of Lincoln Stories For Leaders and On The Brink: The Life and Leadership of Norman Brinker (co-authored with Norman Brinker).
