About this item
“Ted Malloch—bon vivant, scholar, diplomat, businessman, sportsman … brings us along on some of his greatest adventures.” —Linda Bridges, Editor-at-Large,National Review
A former Yale professor and senior business executive whose contact list includes the most powerful leaders in business, media and politics, Ted Malloch has seen it all, done it all, and now is telling all. From his appointment as sergeant in the Toilet Patrol (reserved for children deemed “gifted”) to his appointment as scholar-diplomat by the US State Department to a peek behind the curiosity curtain at the Davos meeting to how he lost millions in the dot-com bubble to his one-person seminar for the chairman of Toyota, it’s all here. With names.
In Davos, Aspen, and Yale, Malloch presents a humorous and witty take on his life experiences in this unique and riotous account. Masterfully woven throughout the stories are insights on his driving passion: enterprise, organization, dedication, skill, teamwork, diligence, and planning. The virtues that drive an uncommon life are illustrated throughout—as are stories of those who have abandoned those virtues. He’s not afraid to name names; many well-known leaders play parts in this can’t-put-down-and-get-back-to-work “WASPY" tale. Malloch demonstrates how his Christian faith and spiritual capital have motivated and guided his purpose and higher calling.
