Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Playing cowboys and Indians as a boy, legendary college football coach Mike Leach always chose to be the Indianand#8212;the underdog whose success turned on being a tough, resourceful, ingenious fighter. And the greatest Indian military leader of all was Geronimo, the Apache warrior whose name is so symbolic of courage that World War II paratroopers shouted it as they leaped from airplanes into battle.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Told in the style of andlt;I andgt;The 48 Laws of Powerandlt;/Iandgt;, Leachand#8217;s compelling and inspiring book examines Geronimoand#8217;s leadership approach and the timeless strategies, decisions, and personal qualities that made him a success. Raised in an unforgiving landscape, Geronimo and his band faced enemies better armed, better equipped, and more numerous than they were. But somehow they won victories against all odds, beguiling the United States and Mexican governments and earning the respect and awe of those generals committed to hunting him down. While some believed that Geronimo had supernatural powers, much of his genius can be ascribed to old-fashioned values such as relentless training and preparation, leveraging resources, finding ways to turn defeats into victories, and being faster and more nimble than his enemy. The tactics of Geronimo would be studied and copied by the U.S. military for generations. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Drawing on his fascination and love for American Indian lore, Mike Leach explains how the tribeand#8217;s organizational structure helped Geronimo be successful. He chronicles specific battles and shows how Geronimo got the most out of his warriors and outthought his enemies. Leach also captures the mysterious nature of leadership itself.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Pain, pride, humility, familyand#8212;many things shaped Geronimoand#8217;s life. In this remarkable book, Mike Leach illustrates how we too can use the forces and circumstances of our own lives to build true leadership today.

A great read."andlt;brandgt;andlt;brandgt;Mike Leach is no ordinary football coach. He brings to the field a wide-ranging knowledge of history, leadership, and teamwork. Like Geronimo, he is a renegade; like Geronimo, he is a man of destiny. Here, this great man of our era shares with his admirers his own admiration for one of the greatest men of andlt;Iandgt;anyandlt;/Iandgt; era.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Geronimo and his Apache warriors were the last free-roaming Native Americans by the mid 1880s. His defiance, leadership, ferocity, and guile made him both feared and legendary. Despite being pursued almost constantly for decades, Geronimo eluded both the US and Mexican armies in defense of his freedom. He surrendered on his own accord on numerous occasions, only to escape again whenever he felt like it. When Geronimo finally surrendered to General Nelson Miles in 1886, he and his small band of just thirty-eight Indians (eighteen warriors, the rest women and children) had outmaneuvered 5,000 US soldiers (one quarter of the entire army), 3,000 Mexican troops, 1,000 hired vigilantes and 500 Apache scouts for eighteen months, at a cost to the US government of $12 million.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Highlighting his most fabled achievements, Mike Leach brings a fresh perspective in andlt;Iandgt;Geronimo,andlt;/Iandgt; illustrating what we can learn from Geronimo, his people, his uniquely American story, and his legacy.
