Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase. Great read and excellent insight into leadership lessons for anyone. I am in the military and this book was recommended to me from a fellow military member; it complimented and was very good addition to the other leadership books I have read. It also is a fun read that departs from some of the more dry leadership books I have read with some interesting stories and biographical information about General Grant. Good grief! Cut to the chase! Well Mr. Kaltman has none of that realizing that your time is important and you need the lesson quickly as the maxims are succinct-one sentence long-with a very short story (half to one quarter of a page) of Grant’s use of it and the outcome
Cigars, Whiskey and Winning book. Temporary Always Act Ethically Trust Yourself To Make Good Decisions. In his final chapter on Grant’s lackluster presidency Kaltman makes the case that Grant may have failed in political office precisely because he did not apply to political life the same skills he used as a military leader. Perhaps there is nothing new under the sun. Perhaps it is no coincidence that Thucydides, Sun Tzu, and Shakespeare sound very contemporary to the thoughtful reader.

The author writes in a lively and provocative style. Based largely on the general's autobiography, The Personal Memoirs of U. S. Grant, the book is organized into 11 chronological periods in the life of this towering figure. Using well-selected historic examples, each chapter is subdivided into a number of cogent lessons.
Ulysses S. Grant was a perceptive and surprisingly modern manager," writes Al Kaltman. A pragmatist who learned from his own and others' successes and failures, he brought new dimensions to strategic planning. He was adept at seizing and exploiting opportunities as they presented themselves, and he boldly shattered paradigms long before the term paradigm had made its way into the management jargon. Cigars, Whiskey & Winning is a savvy blend of biography, history, and leadership wisdom that will appeal to aspiring business leaders and Civil War buffs alike.
