One of the most captivating heroes of the last decade and the author of the New York Times best seller Highest Duty explores the nature of leadership with some of America's best and brightest.

At a time of political polarization and economic turmoil, we yearn for superior leadership. Few have demonstrated this trait better than Captain Sully Sullenberger, a man who embodies the core values that are at the heart of America: responsibility, optimism, integrity, loyalty, and compassion. In this follow-up to his best-selling memoir, Sullenberger engages nearly a dozen distinguished Americans to explore the nature of leadership, what it means, what it takes, and how it can be fostered and developed in all of our lives.

They are asked the important questions: Where do the best leaders come from? And how do the most successful and creative truly lead, motivate, and inspire? Sullenberger talks to men and women from diverse fields, including space exploration, business, government, education, sports, finance, medicine, and the military - all of whom embodying, in the truest sense, moral courage and leadership by personal example.

Among those included are: Tony La Russa, the legendary baseball manager; Gene Kranz, the NASA flight director during the historic Gemini and Apollo programs; Michelle Rhee, founder of the New Teacher Project; former governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm; Jim Sinegal, co-founder and CEO of Costco; Lieutenant Colonel Tammy Duckworth, former assistant secretary with the Department of Veterans Affairs; Bill Bratton, former NYPD commissioner and LAPD chief; and former Labor secretary Robert Reich.
