A Hero's Beginning

Length: 305 pages4 hours

He has no particular desire to enter politics though he has a natural aptitude for it, and he finds himself thrust into the politics of the modern world. He must prepare for war (not that war).  His crew is being threatened. His class is being threatened. And so Lyndon must now try to unite and lead the entire 6th grade class to confront the challenges they face. Yet Lyndon knows from his father’s example that in this day and age it is nearly impossible to organize groups to take effective action.

His job therefore is nothing more complicated than figuring out how to overcome the politics of inertia. He must do what even his father could not do, he must lead.
