Abstract:

One of the most inspiring and successful global leaders of the early 21st century explains how bold, imaginative leadership can solve even the most intractable problems--and why there is no such thing as a lost cause. Just a decade ago, Colombia was regarded as a "failed state," besieged by megalomaniacal drug kingpins, ruthless terrorist groups, and abominable poverty. But since 2002, it has been dramatically transformed into a far more peaceful, stable modern democracy with a promising future. Now, the man who led the transformation, former Colombian president Álvaro Uribe Vélez, offers the untold story of how, at enormous personal risk, he refused to accept Colombia's perilous status quo. He also explores practical lessons of hands-on management, relevant to both political and business leaders.--From publisher description.
