"After you finish this book, I am sure that you will agree with me that the country desperately needs a dose of Joe Plumeri. His passion, honesty, and sense of purpose flows through these pages, which are filled with life lessons that extend from his childhood to his rise to the top of the corporate world. Plumeri points out that the key to being a good public speaker or a successful leader is having the courage and self-awareness to be yourself--an important insight for all of us."--Bill Bradley, former US Senator "Joe Plumeri is truly one of a kind. In today's day and age, his message is an important one. This is the story of finding your passion, following your heart, but most of all: being yourself."--Jeb Bush, former Governor of Florida "Joe Plumeri's book is delightful. It is courageous in its honesty and profound in reminding us of what is most important in life. His references to Jack [Jackie Robinson] are heartening to me and further the message of brotherhood. I especially hope young people read it--to be inspired and to receive the guidance that so many of them are seeking in today's fast-paced world."--Rachel Robinson, Founder, Jackie Robinson Foundation "Joe Plumeri is one of the best motivators and leaders that I know. This book is his life story, both the heartaches he has faced and the many accomplishments he has had. Anyone interested in the art of leadership should read this book and, through Joe's career, learn some of the best traits possible."--Henry Kravis, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO, Kohlberg Kravis and Roberts (KKR) "Wall Street has created a league of giants in the last half century and I regard Joe Plumeri as its Babe Ruth. Leading by doing it his way and leaving it all on the field. With Joe in our locker room, First Data is in the company of greatness, a genuine aura that comes shining through in The Power of Being Yourself."--Frank Bisignano, Chairman and CEO, First Data Corporation Financial Times, 4/9/15; Los Angeles Times, 4/12/15 "There is something irrepressibly guileless about the author. This makes him likeable, which demonstrates the power of being yourself, perhaps...Ultimately the stronger message is not about being your most authentic self, it is to pay attention to life beyond work." Success magazine, May 2015 "Plumeri illustrates his point with engaging anecdotes."
