In this powerful book, McChrystal and his colleagues show how the
challenges they faced in Iraq can be relevant to any leader.
Through compelling examples, the authors demonstrate that the 'team
of teams' strategy has worked everywhere from hospital emergency
rooms to NASA and has the potential to transform organizations
large and small.
