In IT'S YOUR SHIP: Management Techniques from the Best Damn Ship in the Navy By Captain D. Michael Abrashoff, the author goes to prove once again why the United States Military (Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard) constantly and consistently produces individuals who continue to make this nation the greatest in the world.
Capt. Abrashoff shows how he took a ship full of "we've always done it that way" sailors and turned them into "there has to be a new way of doing it" go-getters. His story, could be told by countless of Ship Captains, Company Commanders, Air Wing Commanders, and anyone that has the authority to make changes happen in the military. Additionally, the story Captain Abrashoff tells is that of men hungry for change. If they weren't then this book would have been titled, "I Tried And The Ship Sank."
This book should not only be required reading at ALL the military academies but at every Business School in the nation (both Undergraduate and Graduate schools). It states clearly that eventhough the MISSION comes first, the people that make the mission a success should at all cost be taken care of. Failing to do so will ensure the failure of the mission.
Listen to this audio book and then pass it on to someone who you think will benefit from the insight, also share it with a veteran and soon you will hear their story of how they got the mission accomplished and the resources and initiative that went into meeting their unique goals. Great Primer to initiating change in your place of business.

Whomever was in charge of the production of this audio book needs to stop. The (insert expletive here) music between sections and/or chapters is extremely "cheesy" and annoying, and it greatly detracts from the reading by Capt. Abrashoff. His narrative and reading is perfectly fine.
Furthermore, I really wish this was an unabridged version!
In summary, the book itself is very good. The only complaint or criticism is the production, which detracts from the book and the author's narrative.
