About this product
- DescriptionWILSON'S WAY - Win Don't Whine is the compelling story of how Donald E. Wilson beat the odds and defied all expectations, first as an outstanding doctor and world leading researcher, and then as the nation's first African American dean of a majority medical school. More than the story of one man on his way to greatness, Wilson's Way illuminates the path that any one of us - of any race or gender - can travel to achieve what seems to be the impossible, in any arena of our lives. As instructive as it is inspirational, the book is especially valuable for CEO's, deans, business leaders, managers, entrepreneurs, teachers, politicians, and anyone in a position of leadership - or who wishes to be. African American and other mirity readers will particularly find the book a motivational, real-life testimony of how to igre the relentlessly low expectations of the dominant culture, and to define and achieve one's own goals in any situation. Prepare to be enlightened, amused and challenged.
