This book interweaves Ike's remarkable life and career with his famous farewell speech. It also discusses how his two terms changed America and demonstrates how Ike offers us the model of principled leadership that is so missing in politics today. Eisenhower reluctantly entered into politics. As president, Ike successfully guided the country out of a dangerous war in Korea, peacefully through the apocalyptic threat of nuclear war with the Soviets, and into one of the greatest economic booms in world history.
An excellent book about a truly great man.
