A compelling collection of personal, inspirational stories, Embracing the Edge recounts how author Neil Peterson overcame physical and learning disabilities from an early age to become a successful entrepreneur, corporate executive and public servant. During his 40-year career, Peterson founded five successful companies including Flexcar, the award-winning car-sharing company, and served as the head of public transportation systems in Los Angeles, Oakland and Seattle. Numerous awards, including TIME magazine's "100 Newsmakers of Tomorrow" in Seattle, attest to his success.
