"The Human in Command represents an original and important contribution to the literature on command. For military practioners it should be required reading on senior command courses, but there is also much here for the non-military reader. Commanders in emergency services and other professions, as well as those conducting research into command and leadership, will find this to be a valuable reference and an excellent source of military material."
(Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, 9:2 (2001)
