His personal story – of perseverance, survival, and transformation – is inspirational for everyone, and he’s translated his experience into lessons on health care, capitalism, community, the power of well-being and the meaning of life. Mission-Driven Leadership is wise, at times harrowing, at other times funny, always riveting and ultimately triumphant.”

“Mark’s book is remarkable because Mark is committed to living a life where his values are integrated into every aspect of it. Mark is describing a life that is whole, unbroken. Certainly there are challenges, but the description of his journey and what he has to offer are not overly idealistic — he has learned how to make that integration real, and offers his learning to us.”
—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

He meditates, does yoga, uses social media to communicate and is exceptionally candid in this must-read book that is filled with priceless wisdom.”
—Bill George, Senior Fellow at Harvard Business School, former Chair & CEO of Medtronic, and author of Discover Your True North
