This book is a lovely little self-pulbished title that was sent to me for review. Everyone knows I’m a huge admirer of Winston Churchill and this book provides a fascinating insight into the man and how he thought.
The book is called What Would Churchill Do and is a unique look through history at Churchill’s qualities and how they can be used today in a business setting.
The author, Stuart Finlay, has carefully done his research and it shows. The book is well written, thorough and joy to read.
I soak up anything about Winston Churchill and this book has made an excellent addition to my Anglophile Library. Finlay provides illuminating commentary backed up by primary source documents. All in all, it makes a very interesting read.
One neat thing about the book is the way it portrays Churchill as a person, a person who knew how to use people in order to get things done. There’s a lot of good nuggets in the book about how to manage people so this book succeeds in it’s intentions to show the business world how a few lessons from history will help them have a better business.
As a small business owner myself, it’s fascinating to take the problems I face everyday and put them into a context like Winston Churchill. It’s fun to think that I can take things he learned and apply them to my own life.
So, if you’re looking for a way to combine work with Churchill, this is the book. Well worth the money.
