These are the references I used to learn more about the legendary business leaders who are featured in All Hands on Deck. To the extent possible, words spoken by these leaders in this book are paraphrased, or in several cases, directly quoted from one of these sources. In any event, every effort has been made to assure that their comments are consistent with what they said in other contexts. The bibliography also includes a listing of general books on the subject of creating culture that have influenced my thinking and that I hope will influence yours as well. I've included this extended bibliography in hopes that you will be inspired to learn more about building a culture of ownership and about the leaders who have shown us how it's done.
