About the author

Humble upbringings did not deter Allen Maxwell from an incredible and dynamic global journey in the Navy and later in the private sector as a defense contractor.

While navigating complex dynamics in both worlds, he developed the Rules of the System, that would be critical to survive challenging circumstances such as serving in the Philippines amid political unrest, a near death collision on the USS Kinkaid, and a devious internal plan to usurp his leadership in Guantanamo Bay.

“Servant Leader, Guardian, Mentor, are my apt descriptors for Allen Maxwell! A truly ethical and moral leader, Allen is committed to providing his most valuable insights in his inspirational book in order to ease the journey for our next generation entering the work force! Allen’s lessons learned are a must read for our youth and will provide a path for their success.”

Dr. Michael C. Bachmann, Rear Admiral, United States Navy (retired)
