If I Knew Then Advice on careers, finance, and life from Harvard Business School's Class of 1963

John T. “Jack” Corrodi Jr. on Turning Points

In 1972, I was driving down the street with my wife in the passenger seat. Suddenly, a 10-year-old boy on a bicycle darted right in front of me. He was in a coma for six months and then died.
