Praise for Grey Eminence

“Edward Cox has written a fascinating portrait of one of our nation’s great soldiers who is little known and under-appreciated. Conner’s legacy of identifying and nurturing talent should be examined by contemporary military and civilian leaders.” – Brian D. Shaw, President, The George C. Marshall Foundation

“Ed Cox’s book serves as a premier case study on what leaders at all levels, in and out of the Army, need to do to build and sustain a learning organization.” – Don Vandergriff, author of Raising the Bar: Creating and Nurturing Adaptability to Deal with the Changing Face of War
