MAKING A DIFFERENCE Stories of Vision and Courage from America's Leaders

by | Read by Michael McConnohie, Chesley B. Sullenberger

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Sullenberger, the “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot, reads his book’s introduction and last chapter with the kind of humility that makes him sound strong and trustworthy. The core of this book, his profiles and analysis of some of our most intelligent leaders, benefits from Michael McConnohie’s engaging narrative skills, which make these leaders sound even more relevant and inspiring. McConnohie delivers the many memorable quotes with respect for all of Sullenberger’s subjects—and their regional accents. The author is a student of history, so his analyses of present-day leaders like political commentator Robert Reich, Costco founder Jim Sinegal, former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm, and baseball’s Tony La Russa transcend leadership clichés. His take on what made each of them effective and the lessons he draws from them are immensely thought provoking. T.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
