Praise for Start Now

“Sit down and listen to Reynold Levy. He is a wise man and in this vivid book he extracts the life lessons forged from an enviable career as CEO of a galaxy of important institutions. In clear, crisp sentences, he distills what he has learned about recruiting people and inspiring executives. Readers are treated to a buffet of anecdotes and experiences that can read as a How-To Book, a compelling guide to determine what you wish to do in life, and the best ways to build a meaningful career.”
Ken Auletta, bestselling author and writer for the New Yorker

“Reynold Levy has spent his life serving others and achieved the kind of personal and professional success that I admire. His book offers invaluable insight into charting a meaningful career path that is drawn from his experience at the helm of some of the world's most complex and consequential nonprofit institutions. Anyone who aspires to make a difference - and to do so with integrity, kindness, and humor - has much to learn from Levy's hard-won advice.”
Lee C. Bollinger, President, Columbia University 

“This book is about work—finding work you love, getting it, doing it well, leaving it—but it is also a book about how to live. Part memoir, part social analysis, part practical guide, it is a terrific read: wise and fun, deep and light, full of stories about people and problems, and the sheer good pleasure of a job that gives back to the world. Never moralizing, just right, Start Now is a book for us all.”
Jennifer Homans, prize-winning author, founder, The Center for Ballet and the Arts, Dance Critic, The New Yorker
