About the Book


“In a new digital world where instant communication has left us feeling more disconnected than ever, it is the tried and tested values and principles that really make the difference to today’s managers. There’s a reason why guys like Sam Walton and Lou Pritchett have been so successful. We should all be so lucky as to listen and find out why.”
Host of The Mangru Report on Fox Business

“What the Internet Can’t Teach You has, in one place, the lessons one learns in a military career. I know many military people who failed because they didn’t learn these principles of leadership and management!”
West Point, Class of 1958, Airborne Ranger, US Army (ret)

“I wish I had had Lou’s book back in 1986 when we introduced Stainmaster carpeting to the world. His succinct maxims are a timeless road map to business success, cutting through the fog of circumstance and technology. I recommend it to all young aspiring leaders.”
—TOM MCANDREWS, the “Father of Stainmaster,”
Former DuPont Worldwide Director, Flooring Systems

Each morning, millions of managers—from supervisors at McDonalds to Fortune 500 presidents—commute to their respective jobs, where their subordinates rely on their leadership, advice, and coaching in order to be successful themselves. Desperate to achieve greatness in a highly competitive world driven by technology, these leaders are often frustrated with the loss of one-on-one mentorship from a boss who has “been there.”

Lou Pritchett, a former executive who was instrumental in the creation of the partnership between Procter & Gamble and Wal-Mart, shares decades of hands-on experience in company leadership, training, and organizational development in order to mentor others with snippets of wisdom and universal truth not found in cyberspace. Future leaders that include entrepreneurs, educators, executives, administrative assistants, and sales representatives will find inspiration in both Pritchett’s wisdom and the seasoned advice of other famous leaders, such as Napoleon Bonaparte, John F. Kennedy, “Stonewall” Jackson, and Ross Perot.

Management is of dollars and things. Leadership is of hearts, souls, and spirits. In What the Internet Can’t Teach You, Pritchett allows others to take a step back in time and learn the same way successful leaders have learned for centuries—through the wisdom of those who know.
