Leader Book Club

The USAFP Leader Book Club reviews are designed to educate, inspire, and challenge by providing summaries of books outside of the military sphere.  Knowing the multitude of demands on everyone’s schedules, many of the books chosen will be intentionally short.  If you have any recommendations for books to be reviewed or if you’d like to contribute, please e-mail John O’Brien, MD or Matt Fandre, MD.
