Synopsis: "It Worked for Me" is a collection of lessons and personal anecdotes that have shaped four star-general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell's legendary career in public service. At its heart are Powell's "13 Rules", notes he accumulated on his desk that are now the basis for his leadership presentations throughout the world. Powell's short-but-sweet rules such as Get mad, then get over it and Share credit, are illuminated by revealing personal stories that introduce and expand on his principles for effective leadership: conviction, hard work, and above all, respect for others. "In work and life", Powell writes, "It is the human gesture that counts".
