What "secrets" ??? Any leadership book has more!

It's a very interesting book on Attila but as far as leadership goes there is nothing you will not find in other more thorough leadership books.

This one you have to listen and then ask yourself how you would apply what he says in today's world.

Great book for new leaders

What did you love best about Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun?

I was given this book by a colleague and friend in human resources when I became a leader in an organization that was under performing and in chaos. This was a good primer for me in learning to focus the team to a cause and do so relentlessly. The length of the audiobook made the content easy to consume.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Atilla's defeat in Rome and how he behaved after the failure.
