Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

A Higher Standard takes a candid look at the exciting military career of US Army General Ann Dunwoody, who received her fourth star—a rank never before reached by a woman—in her fourth decade of service. From her first command leading 200 soldiers to her final one leading 69,000, Dunwoody reveals the challenges she faced and the changes she initiated by sharing both the smallest moments and the most pivotal events in her career.

With a foreword by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, author of the bestseller Lean In, this book offers sound leadership principles, insight into critical issues facing our nation, and applicable lessons for achieving success in any field.


"Ann Dunwoody served her country for 37 years, inspiring countless soldiers and citizens along the way with her many firsts. As this book shows, her commitment to and zeal for service haven't ended with her military retirement."
—Walter Isaacson, President & CEO of The Aspen Institute and author of The Innovators

"An amazing, uplifting story—and an important one for us to learn from. Ann Dunwoody was our first female four?star general, not because she was a great female soldier, but because she was simply a great soldier. She drove change—blazing a trail through myriad challenges—and did it with extraordinary wisdom courage, and a selfless commitment to soldiers. An inspirational guidebook for anyone trying to make their team or organization better."
—General Stanley McChrystal (U.S. Army, Retired), author of My Share of the Task and Team of Teams
