  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 July #1
    *Starred Review* As host of his PBS interview show, The David Rubenstein Show, businessman and philanthropist Rubenstein (The American Story, 2019) shares his unparalleled access to many influential leaders, using his stature and experience to provide insights otherwise unavailable to many. Here, readers find interviews from a dizzying array of famous people—Q&A sessions that probe the nature of each individual's success and his or her legacy. An introduction launches into Rubenstein's ruminations on life; his 12 attributes of leadership, from luck and focus to failure and integrity; plus his belief that real success occurs during the second and third thirds of life on earth. He then organizes his 30 contributors into six categories: visionaries, builders, transformers, commanders, decision makers, and masters. Readers will want to keep a pen handy: "Most of our regrets are acts of omission" (Jeff Bezos). "Your legacy is every life that you've touched" (Oprah). "Data is actually sexist" (Melinda Gates). "If you're willing to make the trade-offs that you need to make, you can have it all" (Indra Nooyi). Words for life. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
