About the Book
TOPGUN on Wall Street chronicles one man's extraordinary journey from the cornfields of Ohio, to the cockpit of an F-14, to the boardrooms on Wall Street. Lt. Cdr. Jeffery Lay and #1 New York Times bestselling author Patrick Robinson bring a groundbreaking voice to the business landscape with a revolutionary answer for stabilizing corporate America: business-the military way.
As a TOPGUN fighter pilot, Lt. Cdr. Lay perfected a tried-and-true military technique: PLAN-BRIEF-EXECUTE-DEBRIEF. However, when he entered Wall Street, he noticed the business world was less efficient, awash with excuses for failure, and a lack of accountability. These deeply-rooted flaws will doom corporate America unless we put admirals in charge and adopt the military's tight chain of command. This game-changing thesis is interwoven with Lt. Cdr. Lay's dramatic story, including his high-intensity fighter-bomber landings, never-before-written details of the TOPGUN weapons school, and his battle with cancer. TOPGUN on Wall Street is destined to show the business world that excellence is a choice and perfection is attainable.
"This is a wonderful book-capturing an insider's look at the elite and mysterious world of TOPGUN, that coliseum for the daredevils of the US Naval Aviation. It's written by a fabulous F-14 fighter-wing Commander. Too modest, but real heavy on our unbreakable codes of Honesty, Integrity, Courage, and Honor. What a read!" —Marcus Luttrell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Lone Survivor
