    Om Worthy Fights

    The New York Timesbestselling autobiography of a legendary political and military leaderIt could be said that Leon Panetta has had two ofthe most consequential careers of any Americanpublic servant in the past fifty years. His first career, beginning as an Army intelligence officer and including a distinguished run as one of the most powerful and respected members of Congress, lasted thirty- five years and culminated in his transformational role as budget czar and White House chief of staff in the Clinton administration. But after a brief ';retirement,' he returned to public service in 2009 as the CIA director who led the intelligence war that killed Osama Bin Laden and then became the U.S. secretary of defense, inheriting two troubled wars in a time of austerity and painful choices. Like his career, Worthy Fights is a reflectionof Panetta's values. It is also a testament to a lost kind of political leadership that favors progress and duty to country over partisanship.Leon Panetta calls them as he sees them in Worthy Fights. Suffused with its author's decencyand common sense, the book is an inspiring American success story, a great political memoir,and a revelatory view onto many of the defining figures and events of our time.
