Character: The Ultimate Success FactorAbout the book

What creates success? Is it skill? Talent? Ambition? Luck? Expertise? Perhaps it's knowing the right people, saying the right things or simply being at the right place at the
right time.

It's none of the above. While a variety of factors form our abilities and influence the events in our lives, there is only one thing that creates genuine success: Character.

Based on the personal, corporate and military experiences of Dr. J. Phillip London, a successful defense industry executive, as well as many other real-life examples, this book presents the time-tested lessons behind character-driven success.
