“Our book is about influence. The question is: What is influence? On a very basic level, influence can be defined as the ability to move a person or persons to a desired action, usually within the context of a specific goal. Now that definition is legitimate and certainly works but I don’t believe it’s the substance of influence, which really is pull.”

“What planted the seed for this book was the Air traffic control strike of 1981. It was a turning point in my life and, obviously, it was a big turning point in my father’s life. And it was also a huge turning point in labor history, not only in America but around the world.”

“My book is about endurance; specifically, it’s about this emerging sport known “fastest known times,” which are basically trail records on the super long trails like the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail. But it also talks about the really amazing people who have set these records, and some of them are my friends and mentors. I wanted to talk about them and then also share my experience as a record setter and illustrate how it was so empowering for me to realize that there is no gender divide when it comes to endurance.”

“I was inspired by my work as a veterinary internal medicine specialist. Although, if I’m honest, when I first started writing this book it was not going to be about my job as a vet. It was going to be about pretty much anything other than that. But once I started writing I realized that there was really only one story I wanted to tell, and that was the story of my patients and the things that they’ve taught me about life, and about medicine, and about being a veterinarian.”
