Description


AS VISITOR TO HAVANA, SHOULD HE FOLLOW THE SAFE ROUTE OR PUSH THE ENVELOPE TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH? Read more in Chapter Eleven, "Issaquah (Mission Havana)"... A memoir of risk-taking, poignancy and redemption, On the Edge recounts University of Washington grad, Stephen Murphy's odyssey east to Harvard Business School. Feel his pain as hopes come crashing down. Watch him struggle through Vietnam and Pacific typhoons, but find his way to Columbia Business School, later Brazil. How does he live in an infamous favela in Rio de Janeiro, as an international banker, or end up with Hollywood studios, fighting pirates? Run the gauntlet with him inside the Beltway in both Bush administrations, yet find a way to keep his cool. In twelve chapters focused on "turning points of life," On the Edge: An Odyssey gives inspiration to professionals to land on their feet despite harsh circumstance. "Murphy's high octane adventures provide fast reading for those keen on showbiz south of the border," writes Steve Solot, author, Brazil Cinema Today, and president, Rio Film Commission. ''Stephen Murphy has indeed taken paths less travelled. This is a frank and personal discussion of success, failure and lessons learned by a Seattle boy who became a global wanderer." -- Christopher T. Bayley, author, Seattle Justice; chair, Stewardship Partners; former King County Prosecuting Attorney.
