    Admiral James Stavridis

    Admiral James Stavridis

    Admiral James Stavridis spent more than thirty years in the U.S. Navy, rising to the rank of 4-star Admiral.  He served as Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and previously commanded U.S. Southern Command.  You can imagine that someone with that kind of experience has seen a lot in his career, so to retire and then write a book about character is an interesting choice.

    Cipher Brief CEO & Publisher talkes with Admiral Stavridis about what made him want to zero in on the issue of character.
