I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership
than Captain Marquet. And in the pages that follow you will find a
model for your pathway * Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits

To say I'm a fan of David Marquet would be an understatement . . . I'm a fully fledged groupie. He is the kind of leader who comes around only once a generation. He is the kind of leader who doesn't just know how to lead, he knows how to build leaders. His ideas and lessons are invaluable to anyone who wants to build an organization that will outlive them * Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why *
