Take Command of the principles in this book. com User, January 26, 2006. I am usually skeptical of these sorts of books, as some authors are seeking to maximize their moment in the spotlight.

Take Command of the principles in this book. com User, February 12, 2006. Some business books are whiny and academic and detached from the "real" business world. However, Kelly does a phenomenal job of balancing his Trump experiences with solid and interesting experiences throughout his life and how they all tie into business success. Too often, the author litters the text with "I" and "me" and the work stinks of arrogance - not the case with this book.

Reviews about Take Command: 10 Leadership Principles I Learned in the Military and Put to Work for Donald Trump [UNABRIDGED] (7):
Cointrius
With examples taken from the military experience lived by Kelly in West Point, you can see the application of ten principles in the administration of people, to manage people who is below and above you. The ten principles are applicable at once, the next opportunity you see one of your employees or one of your bosses. If you have seen the apprentice, the reality developed by Donald Trump, above all the second season, you will see how Kelly Perdew applied these principles in many occasions which at the end leaded him to the victory, without any question, if you let me.

I was in charge of a maintenance department the last 30 days and I was a little worried because I had never been in this position anytime, that is why I bought the book. I applied the principles everyday and all my time as a responsible of the department was easy and without to much trouble, even with the different problems that we had because, as a maintenance department we always have to solve problems urgently.

Each chapter of the book begins with a little experience of Kelly in his daily business life. Then he presents some experience of a person who has lived the Army or the Navy life and applied it on businesses. In the middle of the chapter there is one commentary about how the principle related to the chapter was applied on The Apprentice. Finally there is an exposition of the principle according to an important person, like Ross Perot, followed by a conclusion which is motivational.

This is an outstanding book that really characterises the very principles that, when honed, molds a successfull, all around individual in a dynamic world.

If you sit, read, take in and apply the words that Kelly writes, it will easily start building upon the basic groundwork for becoming a more refined individual. Even if you consider yourself to be at your prime, you can never stop learning - and learning from other people is probably the best way to learn.

From reading the words that Kelly has written, I now garnish a huge amount of respect for where he is today by where he came from. His dedication for laying out these principles that sharpened himself into a highly dynamic and motivated individual expresses to me that he is truely a man of inspiration that challenges himself on a consistant basis.

Duty, Impeccability, Passion, Perserverance, Planning, Teamwork, Loyalty, Flexibility, Selfless Service, Integrity. All of which, we as humans should constantly strive daily to refine each of these aspects of our life. I can not express to you how important it is to keep working on your personal and professional development for your personal life and your career. Stay Motivated and Stay Persistant in your dreams.

As for the style of the book.

I got this book Friday night and I started reading it immediately. I really wanted to find out what built Kelly to where he is right now, and what he really values from his experiences by his principles.

I simply tore through the book. I really couldn't put it down, honestly. I read a quarter of it friday night and came back to it saturday night to finish it up. It is very easy to the eyes and very easy to become captured by the writing. A well developed book and I would definitely recommended it to be put in your professional development library at home!

I volunteered 4 years of my life to the Marine Corps (01-05) and in this book is everything I stressed as a Marine and pushed my Marines under me to understand. These are truely the fundamental building blocks to your professional future and you should always be aware of improving yourself.

Overall, for the price, you can not beat the experience shared within.

This book by Apprentice winner Kelly Perdew is a worthwhile read. Written in the style of many military-business leadership books, it swtiches back and forth between Perdew's Apprentice exploits and anecdotes from great military veterans turned business leaders. The stories about Perdew's career, Apprentice tasks, and about others are both inspirational and entertaining. I am giving 4 stars because he talks about principles, but does not go deep into the reader's application of them.

Nevertheless, this is a worthwhile read for both the Army or corporate officer.

Kelly writes in a compelling way creating parallells and connections between him winning the various tasks on The Apprentice and his military experience. I like his style and his sense of taking responsibility even when things go wrong. Humility is deifinetely a trait a leader must develop!

I found the book a pleasant read and I liked the fact Kelly was talking a lot about the lessons he learnt in life and how these experiences enabled him to move on.

I found Mr. Perdew's 10 Leadership Principles very applicable to life and work. Although I never served in the military, My father was an officer in the USAF for over 30 years. Many of those lessons that Mr. Perdew learned at West Point were similar to the lessons that my father taught me. Today's business world lacks discpline, many people say they will do something today but you often receive it tomorrow or maybe not at all. I would recommend this book for anyone that is struggling with how to add discpline to their leadership principles.
Braendo
This book was made by people trying to grab a quick buck. Not much in the way of help, but a lot of self-promotion and bragging.
Fenius
This is a great book that draws comparisons between Kelly's military service and his rise through the entrepreneurial ranks. I know Kelly personally, and he is not only a successfull businessman, he is also a devout humanitarian. Highly recommended!
Great!!!
