Description

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.
