Overview

When you hear about super successful people, do you ask yourself, “How did they do that?” I do. So, I interviewed some of these people to learn what and perhaps who led them to their success.

How Did They Do That—Career Highlights, Triumphs and Challenges shares compelling and entertaining stories from actor Blair Underwood, Governor Doug Wilder and Iran hostage survivor Kate Koob. These three and others give anecdotes from their careers and from circumstances they encountered.

Written and packaged in a way to attract the believer, yet not turn off those who are possibly non-believers, the interviewees disclose how they obtained their knowledge and skills, developed their personal character and they tell how family, friends and God influenced their lives and life choices.
