Editorial Reviews

"Gripping adventure and actionable advice . . . Useem not only takes us into the experiences of others but also draws out
striking lessons."--Fast Company

"One thoughtful work like this is worth a ton of new-age, self-help tomes that are high on fluff and low on
scholarship."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A really good story is a time-honored way to show how leaders respond to extreme challenges [and] that's what Michael Useem delivers."--USA Today
