To satisfy both his loves, Hayward brings together Churchill and business. Surprisingly, it proves to be a happy marriage. Chronicling the events of Churchill's long career to sift out the mix of qualities that enabled his success as a wartime leader, Hayward discovers the very qualities needed by business leaders in today's warlike competitive climate. What are they? In short, a love of history, a love of the English language, the need to take charge and the heart for a good scrap! British reader Stuart Langton reads Churchill's quips and Hayward's narrative with clarity and precision. Both are delivered in a steady rhythm and even, thoughtful pacing. But Churchill is voiced more dramatically, as the "last lion" should be, and it is really his voice in the end that we hear through Langton and Hayward. Let the CEO take note! There's a place again for long, expansive memos. P.E.F. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
