How Ike Led

Susan Eisenhower’s new book How Ike Led examines the principles behind Eisenhower’s biggest decisions.

Few people have made decisions as momentous as Eisenhower—from World War II to the early years of the Cold War. He was a man of character, a principled leader who embraced accountability and worked tirelessly to forge unity of purpose.

How Ike Led shows us not just what a great American did, but why—and what we can learn from him today.

“It’s an Inspirational Book”

Susan Eisenhower’s How Ike Led distills from her grandfather’s life the enduring qualities of successful leadership. Those qualities—dedication to duty, sincerity, fairness, optimism, humility, patience and restraint, moderation and accountability—are illuminated through anecdotes both moving and entertaining from Dwight Eisenhower’s decades of unparalleled service to America. ”

A well-written reflection on one of the most significant American presidents. The compelling substance of How Ike Led is enhanced by the author’s sensitive style. It brings one of America’s most remarkable public figures into lasting focus.
