Character and Greatness of Winston Churchill: Hero in a Time of Crisis
Winston Churchill was one of the most extraordinary leaders of the twentieth century. What enabled him to stand so steadfastly when all those around him seemed to turn back in fear? What enabled him to inspire whole nations to endure the unendurable and to achieve the unachievable when all those around him had already surrendered all hope? The Character and Greatness of Winston Churchill is a remarkable study of Churchill's leadership skill and answers these questions and more. The result is an account that is no less inspiring today than it was three-quarters of a century ago when the great man's shadow fell large across the world stage. According to Henry Kissinger, "Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leaders with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the ... future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success as a technique for eliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values." Winston Churchill was a hero.
English Text. Edited by Marta Gargiulo and Giulia Tionfera. Roma, 2014; paperback, pp. 66, b/w col. ill., cm 21x21. (Varsi). Animando i muri delle strade di molte città europee il supereroe di Solo diventa un cittadino a tutti gli effetti, aumenta il coinvolgimento con il pubblico e racconta a ognuno di noi che nel nostro piccolo siamo tutti supereroi. Solo, in quanto street artist, scende in strada con stencil, sticker, marker e pennello. Ogni materiale possiede una caratteristica specifica e Solo lo utilizza secondo l'occasione come strumenti di un'orchestra che concorrono alla realizzazione di una sinfonia: l'acrilico campisce le figure, lo spray delinea le ombre e le sfumature di colore mentre il marker ne definisce le linee. La poetica urbana di Solo si inserisce in una scelta espressiva che tramite la raffigurazione di supereroi e di scene della tradizione, tratta virtù moderne e antichi valori.
You Can't Predict a Hero: From War to Wall Street, Leading in Times of Crisis
Many things set Joe Grano apart from the typical corporate leader: his decorated military career, his humble origins, his lack of a formal college education, his meteoric rise. But perhaps the most unique aspect of Grano’s life and career is his ability to deal with crisis. When things are at their worst, Grano is at his best. From Vietnam to 9/11, from the market crash of ’87 to today’s financial crisis, Wall Street legend Joe Grano has been at the front lines of the most defining American crises of the last forty years. Whether leading draftees through combat as a Green Beret in Vietnam, regrouping a team of brokers during the market crash of 1987, or working tirelessly to reopen Wall Street after the attacks on 9/11, Joe has served at the forefront, leading and even inspiring others when things seem at their darkest. Structured around six specific crises he faced in his life and career, You Can’t Predict a Hero tells the unique story of how Grano was able to triumph over challenges both personal and professional.
