It is a story that has been told to corporate leaders, industry heads, U.S. Senators, Supreme Court Justices, and even recurring invitations from a former U.S. President. Brad is always entertaining, but in this book he wrote for his son and daughter, he is simply one of the most inspiring speakers you’ll hear.
