Harvard professor’s ‘profound gift’ – Author Eric Sinoway on lessons he learned from mentor Howard Stevenson

A new book is out this week in the classic spirit of professor student mentor stories like “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “The Last Lecture. Eric Sinoway writes about his former Harvard Business School professor. His name is Howard Stevenson and his book is inspired by Stevenson’s heart attack scare back in 2006. Eric writes:

“At the moment that I learned Howard had cheated death I made a subconscious decision to capture of the wisdom that Howard had been effortlessly dispensing and to share that wisdom with people who’d never have the chance to learn from him directly.”

The book is called “Howard’s Gift.” Author Eric Sinoway joins Soledad and the “Starting Point” team this morning to share a glimpse into the ‘gift’ that Stevenson shared with him.
