Leadership by Henry Kissinger

This book’s full title is Leadership: Six Studies in World Strategy. This is a wonderful book and highly enjoyable to read. Kissinger talks about Konrad Adenauer, Charles de Gaulle, Richard Nixon, Anwar Sadat, Lee Kuan Yew, and Margaret Thatcher. I have a better view of Nixon because of this book.

Critical thinking is what we need rather than just believing in what you hear from our leaders and the press. I am sorry if anyone disagree with this, but I like to read all points of views and then decide for myself, what I will accept or not accept. That seems like an unpopular position are a lot of people.

Andrew Anthony on the Guardian writes an review of this book. He quotes Christopher Hitchens, an author I have never cared for. Abraham Sofaer on Moment Magazine does an interesting review of this book. Francis Sempa on New York Journal of Books likes Kissinger. Most of reviews do. See the review on Kirkus.

This is a short interview on Good Morning America. Henry Kissinger is interviewed about this book on MSNB. Henry Kissinger is interviewed by World Affairs Council of Dallas Fort Worth. The interview starts around 4 minutes in.

An index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. I have three blogs. The first talks only about specific stocks and is called Investment Talk . The second one contains information on mostly investing and is called Investing Economics Mostly. My last blog is for my book reviews and it is called Non-Fiction Mostly. Follow me on Twitter.
