The most widely recognized business executive of all time asks the tough questions that America's leaders must address:
What is each of us giving back to our country?
Do we truly love democracy?
Are we too fat and satisfied for our own good?
Why is America addicted to oil?
Do we really care about our children's futures?
Who will save the middle class?
Lee Iacocca believes that leaders are made in times of crisis: such as today. He has known more leaders than almost anybody else, including nine U.S. presidents, many heads of state, CEOs of the nation's top corporations, celebrities, and even a pope, and is uniquely suited to share his wisdom, knowledge, and wit about the leadership of America. Lee Iacocca does not mince words, and in Where Have All the Leaders Gone? he offers his no-nonsense, straight-up assessments of the American politicians most likely to run for president in 2008. He also shares his lessons learned, and issues a call to action to summon Americans back to their roots of hard work, common sense, integrity, generosity, and optimism. Where have all the leaders gone? Lee Iacocca has the answer.
"Iacocca rails against the lack of leadership in vital national concerns such as health care, open markets and energy policy....The book's strength lies in Iacocca's emotional honesty." (Publishers Weekly)
"Although Iacocca presents a brutal analysis of cronyism in Washington, D.C., the abysmal situation in Iraq, and failed policies at home, he is not a pessimist. With a reputation as a straight shooter, he hopes to inspire more young people to vote. This is a surprisingly outspoken take on the pressing need for real leadership in this country." (Booklist)
