"In his inspiring book, Bob Brooks, having capped almost four
decades in law enforcement with a twelve-year tenure as the elected
sheriff of Southern California's Ventura County, has invited us
into the private quarters of his heart to reveal a set of
battle-proven guidelines that he kept on his desk, each powerfully
verbalized in the language of the apostle Paul's short letter to
the early Christians in the city of Philippi. Paul's counsel and
Brooks' stories of their impact on his leadership style, and his
life of service, suddenly seem tailor-made for today's challenges
to anyone with huge responsibilities and tough choices that affect
the lives of others. Brooks' writing style is both commanding and
gently encouraging, sympathetic but pulling no punches. Leaders
will find themselves keeping his book nearby to pick up again and
again-to read and re-read-when faced by challenges that can wear
one to weariness or timid responses just when assurance and clarity
