Hearts Touched with Fire: How Great Leaders are Made
“David Gergen knows power, and he understands leadership… An invaluable guide to making things – good things – happen.” – Jon Meacham
A former White House adviser to four U.S. presidents, CNN analyst and founder of the Harvard Center for Public Leadership, David Gergen draws from his experiences as a trusted voice on national issues to uncover the fundamental elements of effective leadership. Gergen traces the journeys of iconic leaders past and present, including pathbreakers like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, John Lewis, John McCain and Harvey Milk; historic icons like Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill and Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt; and contemporary game changers like Greta Thunberg, the Parkland students and the Black Lives Matter movement.
