(See W. J. Holland, pp. 14-18, April 2007 Proceedings)
Vice Admiral John G. Morgan, U.S. Navy-Admiral Holland's article is spot on. He has illuminated the challenge. We'll need his help-and yours-to clear the bar.
"Warlord Loop Reading List"
(See J. Collins, pp. 34-39, April 2007 Proceedings)
Michael L. McDaniel-After reading the article on the Warlord Loop Reading List in the April issue. I did some comparisons with the current Navy Reading List and came up with a challenge bigger than any that Rear Admiral Holland mentioned in his article.
The books in the two lists can be roughly grouped into five categories: history, biography, strategy, fiction, and management. But the proportions between the two lists are dramatically different, as can be seen from the following breakdown:
The Warlord Loop list is long on history and strategy, and very short on management. The Navy list shortchanges history and strategy for more fiction and far more management. More management than is healthy, frankly.
