How Ike Led

The Principles Behind Eisenhower's Biggest Decisions
By: Susan Eisenhower

Book Review

Susan Eisenhower had a tough task writing this book, and she handled it well. She acknowledges in the intro that this is not an actual biography of her grandfather. I struggled with her selection of content because I wanted more of the dimension and feeling of a traditional bio. However, I acknowledge that would have ruined her focus of the book. As I finished the book, I had come to respect and appreciate why she selected the things she did. Susan does acknowledge President Eisenhower's critics along the way, although I found myself wanting to know more of where they were coming from. The principles of Ike's leadership that Susan exposes truly are timely as we face the mess the U.S. is in today. I think I will need to read this book again after I have read a lot more of the history surrounding Eisenhower's public life.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
