Six Months in 1945: FDR, Stalin, Churchill, and Truman--from World War to Cold War by Michael Dobbs

 

“Superb . . . Dobbs tells the story with the precision of a fine historian and the verve of a first-rate journalist.” 
The Dallas Morning News
 
“Elegant and convincing. . . . Dobbs’s description of the fledgling relationship between the two superpowers is unerringly fascinating.” 
The Washington Post
 
“[S]uperbly evocative . . . So vivid is the writing that you can practically feel the shuddering vibration and turbulence in what was then the state-of-the-art aircraft carrying Roosevelt on the first visit by an American president to the Soviet Union.” 
San Francisco Chronicle

Six Essential Elements of Leadership: Marine Corps Wisdom of a Medal of Honor Recipient (Leatherneck Original)... by Wesley L. Fox

 

The author explicitly notes and discusses the important difference between leadership and management, a difference that is too often missed or ignored by many books on leadership. The significance of the difference between leadership and management is easier to recognize by considering the author's numerous examples of leadership in the Marine Corps. A person leads troops on the battlefield, but a person does not manage troops on the battlefield. The management techniques that can be successful in the day-to-day operation of an organization or office probably will be ill-suited and inadequate to train, prepare, motivate and lead people into combat.

Never Look a Polar Bear in the Eye: A Family Field Trip to the Arctic's Edge in Search of Adventure, Truth, and... by Zac Unger

 

BBC Wildlife Magazine (UK), April 2013
“[A] frequently bitingly accurate look at the circus that surrounds the polar bears’ presence, and at the animals themselves, which go about their business inured to the hysteria their annual routine provokes…The author is clearly a thoughtful and concerned observer who cares deeply about polar bears and their future, and has provided [an] entertaining—and certainly unique—addition to the canon of polar bear literature.”

Shadow Warrior: William Egan Colby and the CIA by Randall B. Woods

 

Evan Thomas, New York Times Book Review
“[A] well-written, thoroughly researched and disarming biography. What was Colby really thinking and feeling all those years as he performed morally questionable acts for noble causes? We cannot know for sure, and Wood, perhaps wisely, does not guess. Colby's inner motivations were well hidden, perhaps even to Colby.”

Wall Street Journal
“In this carefully researched biography, Mr. Woods provides a favorable but critical evaluation of a man whose undeniable talents did not prepare him to lead America's most prominent spy agency at its most perilous moment.”

Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs by David Grimm

 

“Grimm traces the evolution of today's pets, from once being considered feral beasts and valueless subjects to family members and quasicitizens. The author's research includes fascinating travels across the country interviewing detectives investigating animal cruelty cases, soldiers training military working dogs, and animal law attorneys, and he also visits a wolf sanctuary…Engrossing, enjoyable, and well-researched.”—Library Journal, starred

“Grimm, deputy news editor at Science, investigates the ever-changing roles played by cats and dogs throughout history and travels the U.S. speaking to those on the cutting edge of animal science and welfare. [His] most valuable contribution…is his reasoned and well-researched discussion of the pet “personhood” movement, particularly its legal implications for veterinarians, scientific research, and agriculture.”—Publishers Weekly
