Coast Guard Reading List


In one package you are buying a selection of 22 books from the US Coast Guard Reading List.

Our world is not exactly breaking out in tranquility, and given this volatile, increasingly complex and uncertain time, sound leadership is even more critical to our collective success. This year offers opportunities for every component to reinforce a culture of excellence and highlight the importance of leadership at all levels. I reflected on my own Leadership Philosophy and selected books to inspire and challenge you to help lead the Coast Guard through this world of accelerating change.


While we strive to maintain ready access to every book in the military reading list; there are some books that go out of print or are no longer reasonably available during my required processing time. Please refer to our Out Of Stock Policy for up-to-date information.
