Description

Product Description The Emmy award-winning news anchor of Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner and co-host of the talk show Outnumbered shares the lessons she learned growing up in a military family paying homage to the military ideals that shaped her and showing how everyone can benefit from bringing the wisdom of military service into their lives. Born into a military family, Harris Faulkner revered her father, a decorated career officer who served three tours of duty in Vietnam and raised his children with the values and ideals of the U.S. military. Accompanying him from posting to posting, young Harris experienced firsthand how success in life was rooted in the knowledge, integrity, and leadership that came from her military surroundings. Indeed, these formative lessons in leadership and work ethic became the guiding principles for her career as a journalist, lessons she credits with her rise to become one of the top hosts on Fox News. Now, she shares the advice, wisdom, and tools that she absorbed through her military upbringing, examining how these ideals have shaped her professional and personal outlook and how everyone can incorporate them into their own lives. Using her father’s career as the backdrop to her experience, she explores the lessons in courage, duty, patriotism, and responsibility that helped her succeed, demonstrating the truth to the axiom that in military families everyone serves—together. Along the way she also interviews current and former military families, generals and other officers, and tells stories from her father’s career to illuminate how and why the message and mission of the military is so effective at changing lives both on and off the battlefield. Illustrated with sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos of her early life and career, this instructive book, part memoir, part motivational life guide, reminds us of our most important values—the keys to a successful life. From the Back Cover Growing up in a military family, Harris Faulkner revered her father, Lieutenant Colonel Bob Harris, a high-ranking officer, pilot, and avionics specialist in the United States military who served two tours in Vietnam. As a young military brat accompanying him from post to post, Harris experienced firsthand how success in life was rooted in the knowledge, integrity, and duty that came from her military surroundings. These formative lessons in leadership and work ethic became the guiding principles for her career as a journalist, eventually leading her to become one of the top anchors at Fox News. In 9 Rules of Engagement, Harris uses her father’s stories, his career, and the profound father-daughter bond they’ve shared throughout her life to explore nine life lessons—each rooted in military life—that have shaped her career and molded her as a person. Whether discussing how to “devise your mission,” “stay ready,” or “think like a general,” these rules reflect a lifetime spent absorbing the military mind-set for success, while always keeping one foot in the civilian world. Examining the courage, determination, and patriotism that her father’s service has inspired in her, Harris shows how his stories of combat and responsibility have been an essential ingredient in her rise through the ranks of national broadcasting, guiding her to her goals regardless of the circumstances. Along the way she interviews other military families, generals, and former and active service members now serving in the United States Congress to illuminate why the message and mission of the military is so effective at changing lives both on and off the battlefield.Illustrated with sixteen pages of never-before-seen photographs of her father’s service and her own life, this instructive and motivational guide shows the transformative power of our military’s ideals, offering a fascinating exploration of how its most treasured values can help all Americans succeed while demonstrating the truth to the adage that, in military famil
