About the Author

Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, III has been dedicated to the pursuit of safety for his entire adult life. While he is best known for serving as Captain during what has been called the "Miracle on the Hudson," Sullenberger is a speaker, aviation safety expert, and accident investigator, serves as the CBS News Aviation and Safety Expert, and is the founder and chief executive officer of Safety Reliability Methods, Inc., a company dedicated to management, safety, performance, and reliability consulting. He lives with his family in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Airline pilot, safety expert, and accident investigator Sullenberger (Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters) is famous for his successful emergency water landing of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in 2009. Here, Sullenberger explores the nature of leadership, e.g., responsibility, optimism, integrity, loyalty, and compassion. To write this book, Sullenberger traveled the world to interview 11 distinguished individuals, including former U.S. Labor secretary Robert Reich; former U.S. Veteran's Affairs assistant secretary Tammy Duckworth; Costco cofounder and CEO Jim Senegal; NASA Gemini and Apollo flight director Eugene Kranz; baseball manager Tony La Russa; education reformer Michelle Rhee; and Admiral Thad Allen, who directed FEMA's relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina. They discuss the essential nature of leadership, the core qualities that characterize the best leaders, and how their experiences can be applied to other people's lives. VERDICT Sullenberger manages to personalize the age-old topic of leadership with this collection of firsthand perspectives of notable leaders. Recommended.-Dale Farris, Groves, TX (c) Copyright 2012.
