9780061924712: Making a Difference: Stories of Vision and Courage from America's Leaders

As a follow up to his phenomenal New York Times bestselling memoir, Highest Duty, Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger explores exactly what it takes to lead and inspire. In Making a Difference, one of the most captivating American heroes of this century—the courageous pilot who brought the crippled US Airways Flight 1549 safely down in New York’s Hudson River—engages some of the most accomplished men and women in the fields of technology, medicine, education, sports, philanthropy, finance, law, and the military in inspiring conversations on true leadership. With powerful thoughts and invaluable guidance from such notables as former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, legendary baseball manager Tony LaRussa, NASA Flight Director Eugene Kranz, and Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Making a Difference is a potential life-changer that stands with Katie Couric’s The Best Advice I Ever Got, Lee Iaococca’s Where Have All the Leaders Gone, Michael J. Fox’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future, and other classic volumes that celebrate human achievement and triumph over adversity.

From the Back Cover:

One of the most captivating heroes o f the last decade and the author o f the New York Times bestseller Highest Duty explores the nature o f leadership with some of America's best and brightest

At a time of political polarization and economic turmoil, we yearn for superior leadership. Few have demonstrated this trait better than Captain "Sully" Sullenberger. In this follow-up to his bestselling memoir, Sullenberger engages nearly a dozen distinguished Americans to explore the nature of leadership: what it means, what it takes, and how it can be fostered and developed in all of our lives. Sullenberger talks to men and women from many diverse fields, all of whom embody, in the truest sense, moral courage and leadership by personal example.

Among those included are: Tony La Russa, the legendary baseball manager; Gene Kranz, the NASA flight director during the historic Gemini and Apollo programs; Michelle Rhee, founder of the New Teacher Project; former governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm; Jim Sinegal, co-founder and CEO of Costco; Lieutenant Colonel Representative Tammy Duckworth, former assistant secretary with the Department of Veterans Affairs; Bill Bratton, former NYPD commissioner and LAPD chief; and former secretary of labor Robert Reich.
