Culture Leads, Leaders Follow
Written by the former Federal Communications Commission Chairman, Al Sikes, Culture Leads Leaders Follow is a book about power--the power of a win-at-any-cost political and business culture and how it has diminished the invisible line of Judeo-Christian morality which has been a central element in our nation’s freedom and prosperity. Mr. Sikes writes about his early years and contrasts them with the culture of the power cities—Washington and New York—where the force field of ambition operated well outside the lines. His life in Washington and New York placed him in the center of a range of disruptive and quite productive technologies. It is those technologies in the hands of social entrepreneurs that can help shape a counter-revolution.
