Reading the old Howard Weinstein novel The Covenant of the Crown. It's a short one with a pretty simple premise. Not a whole lot of substance in this one.
Actually, for one of the short novels from that era, it's got plenty of substance -- great character work for the Spock-McCoy pair and for Kirk separately, and some nice ruminations about the nature of leadership. It's always been a favorite of mine.
Maybe it has to do with me being a former Army Officer but I feel like I've heard every single take on leadership in existance. I just didn't find anything that I haven't heard before with regards to leadership in this book. If I would have had read this book in 1981 then maybe I would appreciate the character work with the big three but I have read pretty much every other TOS novel there is so I'm not really pulling anything out of this that I haven't heard before.
