Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Wes Robert's first book, Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun—one of the most popular business books ever sold—told managers how to survive tough times. Now the long awaited sequel, Victory Secrets of Attila the Hun, shows leaders how to win on the business battlefields of the nineties and beyond.

America's most successful leaders, including H. Ross Perot; Pat Riley, coach of the New York Knicks; and R. L. Crandall, Chairman and President of American Airlines, have already discovered that Wess Roberts is one of the freshest and most creative voices to address the challenges of leadership in today's economy. Now Roberts brings you more of Attila's pithy advice on winning (that is, making money) as well as reducing or even eliminating loss.

His more than 300 "secrets" are aimed at creating successful management for any organization—whether it's a small business, professional group, or Fortune 500 corporation—and on leading an entrepreneurial team to victory against competitors in the real world where the bottom line really counts.


"Must reading for every CEO, and every first line manager."
—M. Kent Burgon, First Vice President, Shearson Lehman Brothers

"This is an even wiser and more important book that the first Attila. It's all about winning and winners. That's why Victory Secrets won't just be read, it will be quoted in business meetings and seminars from New York to Frankfurt to Tokyo."
—James Patterson, Chairman, J. Walter Thompson, North America

Great book on success December 14, 2007
Reviewer: from South Bend, IN United States

Wess Roberts has a varied background in the military, corporate America and through various charity organizations. He is an expert on leadership and human behavior. I appreciate the quick read with great insight found in this book and his other books. I understand that Wess now has a web page (www.attilascamp.com).
