In high school, Eric Rieseberg’s parents were advised their son should pursue a trade rather than go to college. Eight years later, at age twenty-six, he became the youngest-ever CEO of a community hospital. How? Eric sums it up in one word: “heroes.”
Heroes Alongside Us
is both a tribute to the men who were the key to Eric’s success and a case for the crucial role of heroes. In his book, Eric shares how the noble acts of heroes make success possible against the odds, using his own story as an example: Eric grew up in a dysfunctional family with a military dad and a mom who suffered from mental illness. And, the odds were also stacked against him when it came to academics. His parents never saw an A on his report card. As it turned out, by the time he was thirty-two years old, Eric had been a hospital CEO three times over. By the time he was thirty-four, he was managing twenty hospitals.
How does a chubby, never-got-picked-for-any-team, sub-par student from a dysfunctional family end up achieving more success than anyone would have expected? Heroes Alongside Us provides the answers.
Written for guys and the women who love them, this book is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Read it and you will either seek a hero, or become one.
