Today my workplace book club got to meet Barry Griswell, the co-author of "The Adversity Paradox" and our former CEO. Despite it being a business book, it really was more of a life advice piece. It examined adversity as a builder of character, and it provided stories of successful business people with humble beginnings.
Barry was captivating. What a great guy! He also signed our books and took pictures with us. I was impressed.
He was very much down to earth and joked around with us peons. Check out his book!
