He is the co-author of numerous books, including "Edge! A Leadership Story" (Finalist 2008 National Best Books Awards) and "From the Barrio to the Board Room" and its companion comic book "Mi Barrio", which are being used throughout the Chicago Public School District and in schools and youth prisons around the country to inspire at-risk youth.
