General Stanley McChrystal is widely admired for his hunger to know the truth, his courage to find it, and his humility to listen to those around him. Even as the commanding officer of all U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan, he stationed himself forward and frequently went on patrols with his troops to experience their challenges firsthand.

In this illuminating New York Times bestseller, McChrystal frankly explores the major episodes and controversies of his career. He describes the many outstanding leaders he served with and the handful of bad leaders he learned not to emulate. And he paints a vivid portrait of how the military establishment turned itself, in one generation, into the adaptive, resilient force that would soon be tested in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the wider War on Terror.

"General McChrystal is a legendary warrior with a fine eye for enduring lessons about leadership, courage, and consequence." --Tom Brokaw

"A compelling account of his impressive career." --The Wall Street Journal

"This is a brilliant book about leadership wrapped inside a fascinating personal narrative." --Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

"Engaging and humble throughout, McChrystal raises the bar for his peers." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
