Packed full of inspiration from sport, from the military, from history and from business. It’s a ‘must have’ field manual for anyone who is leading or trying to perform in the modern age. It helps you understand stress and what is normal, it challenges the myths of mental health, and equips you for when the big attack comes. There are 100 actions you can take to deal with stress, all practically tested by successful contemporary and historical leaders. Most of the book is for everybody, but the final section is specifically for future leaders. Easy to read, and practical.
