This book is an "eye opener" for me. The outstanding men and women interviewed were initially presented as people who had dealt with their respective interests, opportunities, challenges and adversities of life, and made "lemonaide out of lemons" in many respects, by their persistence, determination and intellect! The follow up on each candidate by Dr. Deborah was even more enlightening as she explained the dynamics of each Leader's particulars, the inventive and dynamic traits that helped each individual create a matrix for success! Dr. Deborah, laid out a coherent and informative description of how each successful leader transformed their individual challenges, tragedies and adversities into positive stepping stones towards their respective goals and achievements. This book helps the fortunate people who read it, to overcome, what they believe to be insurmountable odds, and come to realize their fondest dreams for success.
