No Finish Line: Lessons on Life and Career

Meyer Feldberg (Author)
Pre-Order   Ships May 5th


Meyer Feldberg is a storyteller. The source of his stories is his rich and unique life, which took him from South Africa under apartheid to a C-Suite in present-day New York, from the hallowed halls of academia to the frenzy of global investment banking. As with all storytellers, there is a purpose embedded in each of his stories that is specific in its details but universal in its message.

No Finish Line is Meyer Feldberg as his friends and colleagues know him. It is the professor dispensing sage advice. It is the mentor telling a tale about himself that is really about you. In his telling, Feldberg's story--his successes and his failures--is a lesson plan for how to lead a worthy personal and professional life.

This concise volume reminds the reader of the importance of courage and decency in our relationships. Feldberg shows how values such as self-awareness, personal responsibility, and generosity play out in ways that in retrospect become pivotal. He relates his regrets as well as his triumphs, candidly sharing how our failures to live up to our own expectations can continue to haunt us. Written by a leading fixture of New York's educational, cultural, and business elite, No Finish Line is an engaging portrait of what matters most in living a good and successful life.

About the Author

Meyer Feldberg is a professor and dean emeritus at Columbia Business School and a senior advisor in the Investment Banking Division at Morgan Stanley. He and his family have lived in eight cities on three continents.


A warm and beautifully written memoir from one of the leading business school educators of his generation. Not surprisingly, this former Dean of Columbia Graduate School of Business--who transformed the institution into one of the world's leading business schools--uses the opportunity to distill a series of life lessons relevant to all. At the same time, the memoir shows a humanity that serves as a role model. Particularly moving is the description of how, as Dean of the University of Cape Town's business school, he used his position to fight against apartheid.--Joseph E. Stiglitz, Columbia University, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize for Economics
Meyer Feldberg has spent life venturing into new countries and new fields. In No Finish Line, he shares the lessons of his experiences--and wisdom on living a good and meaningful life.--Michael R. Bloomberg
