No retreat, no surrender : one American's fight by Tom D DeLay( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tom DeLay was nicknamed "the Hammer" for his hard-charging, take-no-prisoners style of leadership. Liberals despise him, but for conservatives he's a hero--one of the architects of the 1994 Republican revolution. For twelve years afterward, he was the driving force of the Republican majority in the House of Representatives. In this memoir, DeLay shares stories from his entire career, starting with his early, raucous days in Texas; his personal conversion to Christ and how that changed his personal and political life; his work with other rebels to sow the seeds of the 1994 takeover; and his ascension to leadership in the House. He also discusses his dedication to abused and neglected children, and his battle to fend off a ten-year barrage of allegations of wrongdoing, which ultimately led to his decision to resign from Congress. Finally, he unveils a blueprint agenda for the country's next group of elected leaders.--From publisher description

Celebrated through some of the most creative and effective advertising campaigns in history, Guinness is brewed at one of the largest breweries on earth and consumed at a rate of more than 10 million pints every day. Beyond the company's financial success, Guinness has also been a remarkable and inspiring force for social good, whose impact was felt from the company's earliest days down to the present. In this fascinating book, New York Times best-selling author Stephen Mansfield stirs together several strains of the Guinness legacy - beer, family, philanthropy, and vibrant and active faith concerned with lifting the helpless and downtrodden. Mansfield tells the story of brewery founder Arthur Guinness and traces the family tree to his heirs who built housing for the poor, restored some of the great institutions of faith in Ireland, and who even ensured that soldiers had pints of brew on the battlefields of the world's great wars."--Jacket
Never give in : the extraordinary character of Winston Churchill by Stephen Mansfield( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to Henry Kissinger, "Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leaders with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the judgment of a future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success in a technique for eliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values." Winston Churchill was a hero. In this look at his leadership in action we see what it was that enabled him to do what few others have ever accomplished in the long annals of history: stand for principle and prevail
