Jerry McNeff’s book, Battlefield Blunders to Business Bullets takes five actual events from the Civil War, analyzes them, and identifies some leadership failures from these events. It then describes how these same leadership failures permeate the business world today and offers practical solutions on how to avoid them. In this fun read you will learn some Civil War history (including Battles of Gettysburg, Antietam, Franklin, and Petersburg) and you will enhance your management skill set at the same time. Now that's multi-tasking!
Jerry has a BA in Mathematics from La Salle University and an MBA from Western New England University. He worked for General Electric and Lockheed Martin, progressing from a systems analyst to Vice President of Finance. He and his wife, Mary Ann, live in West Chester, Pa. They enjoy summers on Seven Mile Island - ten years in Stone Harbor and the last ten in Avalon.
