Summary: "Meyer Feldberg is a storyteller. The source of his stories is his rich and unique life, which took him from South Africa under apartheid to a C-Suite in present-day New York, from the hallowed halls of academia to the frenzy of global investment banking. As with all storytellers, there is a purpose embedded in each of his stories that is specific in its details but universal in its message. No Finish Line is Meyer Feldberg as his friends and colleagues know him. It is the professor dispensing sage advice. It is the mentor telling a tale about himself that is really about you. In his telling, Feldberg's story-both his successes and his failures-is a lesson plan for how to lead a worthy personal and professional life. This concise volume reminds the reader of the importance of courage and decency in our relationships. Feldberg shows how values like self-awareness, personal responsibility, and generosity play out in ways that in retrospect become pivotal. He relates his regrets as well as his triumphs, candidly sharing how our failures to live up to our own expectations can continue to haunt us. Written by a leading fixture of New York's educational, cultural, and business elite, No Finish Line is an engaging portrait of what matters most in living a good and successful life"-- Provided by publisher.
