“Bob Knowling’s contribution to public education in New York City is incalculable; his lessons on leadership and team building are profound; his story is inspiring.”

—Dick Parsons, chairman, Citigroup; former chairman and CEO, Time Warner

“Bob Knowling is a unique leader. He combines vision, a tireless work ethic, but most important, a compassion for people and business that compels him to always do the right thing. Bob’s book is a must-read, a story of one global leader who never looks down on anybody unless it’s to give them a hand to lift them up, a man who knows where he’s going but is humble enough to look back and give back to his colleagues, his extended family, and his community.”

—The Reverend Jesse Jacks on, president and founder, Rainbow PUSH Coalition

“An inspirational book with the right blend of humility and honesty, as Bob Knowling’s journey takes us from humble beginnings to becoming CEO of several companies and the founding CEO of the NYC Leadership Academy for school principals. His life has been one of helping others build successful lives.”

—Noel Tichy , professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan; coauthor (with Warren Bennis) of Judgment

You Can Get There from Here is an inspiring story that shows what hard work, determination, and integrity can accomplish in business and in life. We can all learn a thing or two from Bob Knowling.”

—Jacques Nasser , chairman, BHP Billiton

“Bob’s personal story of resilience, reinvention, and reflection is impressive. A colorful journey certainly worth reading.”

—Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions
