Gen. Stanley McChrystal Releases “Leaders: Myth and Reality”

We’re excited to announce that Liquidax Senior Advisor and NY Times best selling Author Gen. Stanley McChrystal has released his latest book “Leaders: Myth and Reality”.

As quoted from the website www.theleadersbook.com “The best-selling author of Team of Teams exposes the mythology of leadership by profiling leaders whose real stories defy their legends.”  General McChrystal partnered with co-authors Jeff Eggers and Jay Mangone to explore what leadership really means, exposing and debunking the many myths that surround the concept of leadership. They focus on thirteen great leaders, showing that the lessons we commonly draw from their lives are seldom the correct ones.

Praise for the book comes from today’s leaders including Sheryl Sandberg, Robert M. Gates, Walter Isaacson and others.

The entire team congratulates Gen. McChrystal, Mr. Eggers and Mr. Mangone for the success of the book and urges everyone to pick up a copy.
