Narrator Nick Podehl has a satisfying grasp of what John Maeda is all about: Podehl sounds as comfortable with the author’s confidence as he is with the author’s humble approach to leadership. Maeda became president of Rhode Island School of Design with no experience leading large institutions. With a delightful openness to learning, this compact book chronicles the novel ways he approached the challenge of serving a diverse group of constituents. Podehl’s performance captures Maeda’s childlike wonder as he explains the transparent ways he embraced conflict, communicated creatively, and built a community that was consistent with his deepest values. Kate Rudd’s spontaneous reading of the introduction (by Rebecca J. Bermont) sets the creative tone that makes the entire audio sound fresh and true to the author’s message.
