    5 of 5 Company Command:The Bottom Line April 9, 2020
    Reviewer: MSgt Dennis Berger, USAF Retired (Amazon Review)  
    While written for Army company commanders the book has applications for unit commanders of all services. Whenever I gained a new commander I would present him with a copy of the book.

    5 of 5 Must Read April 9, 2020
    Reviewer: Jason (Amazon Review)  
    This book was exactly what I was looking for as a CPT getting ready to assume company command. Only improvement would be a new edition with applicable updates from the last two decades. NOTE:  There is an Updated version since this review was posted.

    5 of 5 Outstanding April 9, 2020
    Reviewer: Brian Larsen (Amazon Review)  
    I found this book to be a very comprehensive, helpful guide. I especially like the advice from military Brass and the War Stories. This book is more dynamic than many others in the field. However, it is impossible to act as a perfect moral beacon all the time. Nevertheless, I took the relentless persuit of moral justice as a necessity, because if it were briefly mentioned one may forget their integrity or place it on the back burner. I would reccommend this book to anyone in a management position, who would rather be a leader than a manager, or military personnel who would like a helpful, easy to read guide.

    5 of 5 A must read for all LTs, do it during OBC! April 9, 2020
    Reviewer: Wesley Brian Sargent (Amazon Review)  
    Less than 1 year out of my OBC, and I was asked twice to take command of my Army Reserve Maintenance Company. The second time I bit! I quickly found this book, and have been reading it day and night to make sure I am covering all my bases. I asked for a list of everything I needed to be thinking about, since I was responsible now for everything my company did or did not do...This book is that list! IT COVERS EVERYTHING AT A MINIMUM YOU MUST BE AWARE OF WITH ANY ARMY COMPANY, RESERVE OR ACTIVE DUTY. MG Meyer does a great job of covering these topics and where to go to find the answers: Taking Command, You and Your 1SG, UCMJ Actions, Personnel/Admin, Training, Supply, Unit Maintenance, and other Misc. Command items. He offers tips on how to do things better, that you won't find in the FM or TM! And he offers stories from other leaders to show realism. This book will help me and my key leadership...I plan to make it required reading at my unit...And I am going to recommend it to my boss! Thanks MG Meyer...you have helped guide a 1LT while he is still fresh in his command...I only wish I would have found this book during OBC so I could have read it prior to taking command. I recommend all 2LTs read this book while you are in OBC and have the time to think about how to apply its knowledge before you do have to take command, it will come along sooner than you think, just a reality of today's military!
