In Leadership is Common Sense, Herman Cain forges, with infectious enthusiasm, an "American Dream" story of his extraordinary rise from humble beginnings to his days climbing the corporate ladder at Pillsbury, Burger King and finally Godfather's Pizza-where he led the management buyout of the company and miraculously turned it from financial decline.
In addition to an in-depth analysis of the transformation of Godfather's Pizza, Cain critiques the leadership styles of a wide range of past and present leaders, from civil rights activists to U.S. Presidents to corporate entrepreneurs to personal heroes.
