Embrace the Rising Sun: Essential Leadership During a Pandemic, a new book by Michael R. Peterson, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Each day, a rising sun brings opportunities to craft a great day and new memories, even during a pandemic.

This book is a collection of daily short stories written during the COVID-19 pandemic. What started as Michael R. Peterson's way of recognizing his company's employees quickly evolved into a means of seeing the world differently. Some stories are serious, some are tear-jerkers, and some are funny. All are meant to inspire transformation and serve as a reminder that each new day is another step in the journey. Enjoy the stories, but live the message.
