 - HH: Pessoa's thoughts on Hunter Harrison biography

"The author [Howard Green] did a really good job putting this incredible man’s life on paper. I’ve been lucky enough to hear a lot of these stories over the years and he was able to get them written for everyone to enjoy, which was really great. 

"When you read about the life of this man, who was basically a self-taught master, it’s quite unbelievable. Hunter started from absolutely nothing and became the leader in his industry. That says a lot about how incredible he was. It was a gift to be able to share time with him and, in my case, an honor to work for him. He was not just a good boss—he was a super boss.

"Hunter touched the lives of so many people. It takes a really special person to do that, and I think it was really nice to read that about him. I think the book reflected him perfectly."
