Pamela Popielarski

"What I learned from Tom Voccola helped prepare me for this job. The Accidental CEO teaches leadership principles that are crucial to success for any CEO. It will play an important role in the success of many current leaders, and indeed, will launch the careers of many more."
CEO, Tropicana Hotel and Casino, Atlantic City, NJ

Charles A. Coonradt

"The Accidental CEO is the absolute antithesis of the Peter Principle. This is the stuff from which CEO legends are born. The lines are blurred between fact and fiction in this masterpiece."
Author and CEO, The Game of Work

Steven Gomes

"The Accidental CEO is to Leadership what The Goal has been to Ongoing Improvement. Tom Voccola succeeds in showing us how ordinary people can change the world in our lifetimes- and he does it by using an entertaining and enlightening story."
Ph.D. Professor, Maastricht School of Management, Holland

Dennis Gomes

"Leadership gurus tell us we need it, spiritual gurus say we have it inside. But no one has shown us how to actually access the power of our Purpose and Passion until now. The Accidental CEO is extraordinary. This stuff needs to be taught in graduate schools."
Former CEO, Steve Wynn’s Golden Nugget, Donald Trump’s Taj Mahal and Tropicana Resorts, CEO, Gomes Casino Management

Brett Modesti

"Tom Voccola takes people from zero to Purpose & Passion in one day."
CEO, CREW Real Estate Services, Inc., Westlake Village, California

Paul Dies

"This book conveys a vital message about what REALLY powers organizations and how to dramatically increase that power. Anyone with leadership experience, or wanting it, will relate to The Accidental CEO in a very personal, if not deeply meaningful way."

Jay Conrad Levinson

"Tom Voccola has made a substantial contribution to literature with this brilliant work of business fiction. As insightful as it is exciting, and as instructive as it is fascinating, The Accidental CEO is a true page-turner. Tom’s work will be long remembered by the reader as a solid CEO instruction manual as well as an exquisite tale."
