How to Think Like Churchill


Prime Minister of the UK from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955, Winston Churchill will always be remembered for his leadership during the Second World War. His commitment to 'never surrender', as well as his stirring speeches and radio broadcasts, helped inspire British resistance to the Nazi threat when Britain stood alone against an occupied Europe. As well as a hugely successful politician, Churchill was an officer in the British Army, a journalist, historian and a writer, winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953. As one of the few voices warning about Nazi Germany in the 1930s, he returned to government to play his part in defeating Nazism and becoming one of the defining figures of the twentieth century. How to Think Like Churchill looks at defining moments in Churchill's life and reveals the key principles, philosophies and decisions that made him the man we remember him as: leader, visionary and national hero. Studying how and why he accomplished what he did, how he overcame personal and professional adversity and stood strong in the face of overwhelming odds, with quotes and passages by and about the great man, you too can learn to think like Churchill.
