A book of inspirational wisdom from the author of Elizabeth I CEO and Patton on Leadership-lessons in leadership, courage, and responsibility..

Alongside Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt stands as one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century. Elected president four times, he inspired and motivated the nation during the Depression and through World War II, all the while battling a debilitating physical ailment. Now Alan Axelrod, author of the bestselling leadership guides Elizabeth I CEO and Patton on Leadership, distills FDR's life into fourteen leadership themes: Purpose and Principle; Change; Self-Interest and Self-Sacrifice; Confidence and Courage; and more. Among the many FDR maxims featured:

€ If you treat people right they will treat you right-90 percent of the time.
€ It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
€ The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.
€ When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Nothing to Fear is sure to be an inspirational and oft-cited volume for leaders-in the business world and beyond.
