From the Inside Flap:

"John Adams did not hesitate to lead his countrymen into revolution, but when other advocates of American independence devoted themselves solely to tearing down British tyranny, Adams kept asking, “Then what?” Asking—and answering—this question was for him the key to managing revolutionary change successfully, for the present and for the ages.

A prime mover and architect of American independence, collaborator in the creation of America’s first army as well as founder of the U. S. Navy, John Adams negotiated the foreign finance that made the Revolution possible, then he negotiated the treaties that ended it in absolute victory.

A steward of justice and liberty, Adams was instrumental in building a government of laws, not men. He believed that power drove all people, all nations, and all enterprises, and that the purpose of good government was to manage power—not by attempting to deny or suppress it, but by using one power to balance another. This was the art and science of revolutionary management.

Adams’s concept of revolution was always less about radical change than about achieving just and effective sustainability, and it is for this reason that his experience offers to those who lead and manage modern enterprises such rich, relevant, and immediately useful lessons. For the more a business changes and must respond to change—the more revolutionary a business must become—the more effectively its leaders must answer Adams controlling question: Then what?”

Drawing on the latest scholarship as well as Adams’s own autobiographical writings, Revolutionary Management: John Adams on Leadership presents 128 lessons for today’s leaders of enterprise. It is written in the spirit and style of Dr. Alan Axelrod's innovative bestsellers Patton on Leadership (hailed by leaders ranging from the New York Yankees’ George Steinbrenner to Warner-Lambert chairman and CEO Melvin R. Goodes) and Elizabeth I, CEO (which has earned praise from former Colorado congresswoman Patricia Schroeder and Chas. Levy Company board chairman Barbara Levy Kipper.
