Much like Admiral Winnefeld’s book, Career Compass, this work gives naval officers the information they need to build a successful career. It covers the entire career spectrum, complementing and supplementing his previous work, as it addresses such topics as the importance and challenges of joint tours, relations with chiefs and other enlisted sailors, and the timeless character qualities needed for success. Taking a chronological approach and a tone that never preaches, the admiral offers advice appropriate to all levels. His chapters on mid-grade tours are particularly useful because they are not covered in other volumes in the series. His ten rules for ‘social polish’ help define the term ‘gentleman’. The son, nephew, brother, and father of Navy men who served afloat in peace and war, Admiral Winnefeld breaks new ground while reinforcing the best advice given over the years to those seeking a successful course.
