This paper reviews the book "Leadership" written by Rudolph "Rudy" Giuliani, who was the mayor of New York in September, 2001 when the World Trade Center towers were attacked. The paper describes the various chapters of the book and discusses the importance of each chapter to the mayor's narrative and its description of his leadership at the time.

From the Paper:

"Chapter Sixteen is the final chapter and is also the only chapter in Part III. Entitled "Recovery," the chapter returns the reader to the events of September 11. Here, Giuliani sums up his remarks while also refocusing on the event that called all of his leadership ideals into action. He also discusses some matters of faith, explaining that the city needed "an infusion of spirit" following September 11, 2001 (378). Though the rubble and debris from the World Trade Center reached to areas far beyond where the towers once stood, Giuliani notes that St,.Paul's Church remained unharmed. Unlike other buildings in the area, St. Paul's made it through okay. For this reason, Giuliani chose St. Paul's as the place where he would say goodbye to the city when he left his job as mayor in December of 2001. For two months he had held the city together after a major terrorist attack. He reflects on his experiences, noting that September 11 strengthened his belief in the positive role of leadership."
